Hi All, just to report that a suspected vagrant Rose-crowned Fruit-dove was 
re-located after initial report some days ago, in ‘suburban’ Devonport, Tas.  
We are making enquiries about the possibility of it being an escapee, but to 
date, no-one knows of anyone keeping Fruit-doves in Tasmania.  The only other 
reports I am aware of (though there may be others) are 1922 and 1968.
