Jangala, Nungurrayi and Mbjitana sitting on a gum tree in front of Mt Sonder. Pink galahs, They just sitting there in the branch of the tree, near the water. Behind it is Mt Sonder landscape. We call them ‘hello cookie’ or elintja in language. They are flying around in the landscape and come near the water, looking for foods for their babies and kids.
