Greetings birders. 

Over the last year or so, I have observed laughing turtle doves in many
areas of country WA, often surprisingly far from Perth. These include
Denham at Shark Bay and as far north-east as Beacon near the emu proof
fence. Does anybody out there know of the exact range of these birds in WA
and any details of their original introduction. Also, are they common in
other states as well?
