Hello Chris,
Thanks for those. The odd Galah would be a mutant that is deficient in melanin. It does not look like a hybrid at all because it is neat and all other features look typical for a Galah.

Good Morning All
Interesting weekend .. a couple of flocks of up to 20 diamond firetails  and several pipits at Stromlo Forest park on Saturday afternoon but not one solitary robin (I'm  pleased I managed to get  a firetail  close enough and still enough to photograph so wanted  to share the photo..)
Then back home to Wanniassa  to be greeted by this galah .. a mutation? a partial abino or a cross breed? - any ideas ? It was back again digging up what is left of my lawn with about 35 of its cousins on Sunday...  wings (underside incl.) back and tail area whiter than  cockatoo colour. Eye pink.
If you are wondering where all the gang gangs have gone.. 5  were perched in a large leafless tree in Kevin Rudd's garden this morning. I
