Of course the Starling and Myna have been well into the top 10 but both fortunately have declined for different reasons. I don't go to this part of Ainslie much but it seems odd to suggest the Spotted Dove as in the top 10, even very locally, in Canberra (Melbourne certainly). Are there really that many there?

In this part of Ainslie (heritage precinct around Corroboree Park - but with dual occupancies preceding at an alarming rate at the cost of "gardens" ), I'm afraid Common Myna, Spotted Dove, Starling and Blackbird would be very strong candidates for inclusion in the top ten - displacing Raven and Eastern Rosella certainly, and probably equalling Galah and S-cC ?
