The Galah or the Rose-Breasted Cockatoo is a widespread bird in Australia. They are so silly and funny that if someone calls you a galah, it means you are a dummy, or maybe even a fool or idiot. The Old Ghan Museum in Alice Springs even had an outdoor "Galahliment House," where they feed the galahs and you can watch them while you eat lunch. I included a couple of videoclips. The galah acrobat definitely lived up to his name.
