Yesterday, Sunday morning , it rained from 6a.m. through to about 1.00 pm in
Adelaide.  This was the first rain for some 3-4 weeks, together with nice
cool weather around 16 -18 deg C.   Something I noticed was a large number
of Galahs just sitting motionless on power lines, not flapping, not
preening, just sitting there in the rain.  No other bird species were doing
this, just the Galahs.

I guess we've all seen them having fun in new rain before, getting rid of
lice and that white powder they have in their plumage, but these were just
sitting motionless.  Any ideas ?
