      My favorite cockatoo.

      Is roseate cockatoo a common name for this species in England? I've only ever known them as galahs.
    • Hix
      Only in Australia are they called galahs. The rest of the world know them as Roseate or Rose-breasted Cockatoos.

      How bizarre! I do love them though. I even have one, although he lives at my parents because I can't have pets where I'm living.
    • Parrotsandrew
      More and more people in the UK are calling them Galahs, but I stick with Roseate Cockatoo. There are quite a few other Australian psittacines with a different common name (or more often used alternative name) here than in their native land.
    • Hix
      Probably because of all the aussies living over there!

      We call them galahs here too, at least parrot-aware people do.
