Hi John

I have heard of several sightings of Emerald Doves along Cattai Creek that
runs through Mitchell Park and even at this Park. There are Emerald Doves
throughout the northern suburbs and in the Royal NP and these doves have
been seen on the western outskirts, even at Cobbity. I have only seen one
myself in Sydney in someones garden near Dural. They are in the Illawarra
Escarpment to the south of Sydney and probably range all the way south to
almost the VIC border (but Alan may want to confirm that). I see/hear them
just about everytime when I am in the rainforests in the Central Coast just
north of Sydney.

They are genearlly much quieter than the other pigeons and are probably more
of them than we suspect in Sydney.
