Some people don't include ANY ferals on their lists (their choice) but most 
follow guidelines that only include ferals with proven established populations 
in the wild.  Surely we don't want yet another feral firmly established 
anywhere in Australia?  I think if anyone is that desperate to see all the 
Streptopelia they should organise a world trip to get them all.  Yes, I hope 
someone publishes the Melbourne locations so that NRE can get to them and 
eradicate these birds before they become pests.

And I hope Michael's tongue was in his cheek!
