Yesterday afternoon about 3.30 pm, we were travelling towards Melbourne on the Hume Freeway. About 11 kms north of Broadford, we saw a cockatoo perched on the Armco barrier beside an overpass. It was clearly a Galah, but its plumage was mostly white - not pure white, but rather dingy as if there were pale grey feathers scattered on the back and wings. The face and cheeks were rather pale pink and so was the upper breast. At first I wondered if it could be a hybrid with Long-billed Corella parentage, but it was exactly the size, shape, attitude and general jizz of a Galah.
