The Galah is one of the most widespread of Australia's parrots, being found in all states. It prefers open grasslands and woodland, is a common species in the cities and towns, and has adapted well to farmed land. Feeding is often done on the ground and their food in the wild is dominantly seed, nuts and fruit. They can cause major damage to cultivated grain crops. For this reason the bird is regarded as a pest species in many parts and licensed culling is permitted in certain states.
