Rain has brought the Galahs.

The rain has caused a stir in the bird community at Kapunda garden. I have seen a pair of Rosellas and a pair of Galahs both checking out the hole in the gum tree again...  this is the pair of Galahs....
... they have been busy modifying the entrance.  Birds in Australia are prompted to breed when rain has fallen rather than when spring has sprung.  Many of those nursery rhymes and stories about spring, not to mention "flying south" don't make a lot of sense here.
