I have been seeing several young galahs out around the place for about 2 weeks. Had not particularly taken note of when & where. 
The young Crimson Rosellas left the nest box in my yard on Thursday afternoon. I was in the kitchen which faces the box. I did not actually see them come out but it must have been very quick. I heard all the noise, likely mainly from the parents and I saw young (I think 3) fly and unsteadily try their first flight and perching. So that is a successful fledging of Crimson Rosellas from this nest box in 2012 & 2014 and Eastern Rosellas from this nest box in 2013 and successful removal of Common Mynas in 2011.
