Geoffrey et al,

Here in Higgins, I am amazed that Galah is the top bird in the list. Until this summer I have never to my knowledge seen a Galah in my garden or flying overhead to my garden. I have observed them 2 or 3 times over this summer, and each time mentally noted it as so unusual. I find it fascinating that apparently they are common in garden situations elsewhere. I would never have thought that. The other 9 I observe in this garden at various amounts on regular occasions, but never the Galahs. My number one would probably be Red Wattlebird, as they are here each and every day all year. They nest within sight of my garden each year as well (different trees some years, but always a nest within sight somewhere from my garden).

Just an observation from this part of the world. <grin>
