We went to the wet lands today and saw this female Galah (females have red eyes males have black). As you can see we got the 'glare' as she was busy picking the seeds from dead thistle heads. Robin said it's the glare I give when I can't have my own way!! - hence the title. Wink

Thank you for your support on my 'Angel De-light' comments and advise is very much appreciated.
Best wishes Carol Smile

We have these birds by the hundreds, but I never knew about the red eyes! The glare is an expression with which I am very familiar though, but not from galahs! Nicely caught.
