Tom was originally a wild Galah, who was found behind our shed at work with a nasty broken wing. I nursed him back to health, though our vet says he will never be able to fly again.. Awards

Hi! My name is Tom (Galah)

I am a Cockatoo from Manhatten, NY.

Tommy, Tootsie, Boof-Head

8 years old   M


Mung Bean Sprouts!!!

On his perch, mum's foot as she walks around, or mum's knee.

Not getting a cuddle as soon as mum gets home.

She saved me from a tragic situation, and gives me all the love and friends I could hope for.

Getting frightened by his own shadow, or something else unfamiliar and making sure the whole world hears about it!!.

Always be sure that your point is heard!!.

  Hi from Australia!
At last someone who knows what a Galah is! Tom is a native of Australia. Wonder how he got to NY must have been hatched there and escaped. I am a Galah named Banjo and I am 18years old. We can live to be over 100 so be prepared. I would love to correspond with you as my Mum loves me to bits and all other birds and animals too.We live in Tropical North Queensland.
Cheers and great to meet you.

Visit me too Banjo

Come visit me, Banjo.

  hi again
Hi Tom

That is a better picture. Now you are a 'too like the rest of us. I thought you were pink and grey! You are very beautiful! We have Galahs at our zoo in an aviary and they like to head bob real fast. Do you do that? I like to dip my food before I eat it? Do you?

Come visit me, Caitlin, Danielle & Teddy.

  Hi Tom
Hope you are well. I bet your mommy is glad you can't fly well. I don't think she would let you go free anyway. hey, how did you end up flying wild in NY? These things usually don't happen in the US> Were you someone's pet, and escaped? Surprised they did not search for you. My story is not as exciting as yours. My mommy was in the bird store with my fister Meiko, while she was being handfed, she saw me, all hairless and bald, and the rest as they say, is history! I am a spoiled rotten Momma boy. I live and breathe to spend time with my momma. Hopefully one day your mommy will get her grey. Hope we can be friends, stop by my page anytime, Your new friend Cesar

  I don't think Tom is a cockatoo
Tom you look like a hyacinth Macaw. Galahs are supposed to be pink and grey. You are good looking though.

Come visit me, Caitlin, Danielle & Teddy.

  Hello Tom (Galah)
Welcome to Bird Channel. Your picture looks more like a hyacinth Macaw then that of a cockatoo. People don't usually find birds like that just laying around with broken wings. Anyway, here is a vote for you. You are a beautiful bird.
