Was it a year ago  I reported on the seminar we were all invited to at NLA, at which one presentation was on spread of Galahs, including their relatively recent arrival in Canberra.  This should now be a chapter in the much-touted ‘Boom and Bust’ book, although I do not yet have a copy myself.


No- Unfortunately the galahs did not make it as a chapter in the book...scoring only a single observation of their increasing numbers to pest status on the Emu fence at Yalgoo in 1965 (p. 20).
