Hi Bruce


I assume that many on this group would appreciate a dedicated spot/person to report Spotted Doves in a systematic manner rather than sporadic emails to Canberrabirds, (which after a while may generate negative vibes towards the reports). Here in Watson for example, SDs are near daily occurrences.


Is there anything in the pipe?

Yes Duncan.

COG & CIMAG Cttees have been working with the ACT Govt on issue since Feb. All agree: we don’t need another feral in the ACT.

Important all obs & especially breeding records are reported.

A pair of Spotted Doves have recently turned up around my place in Giralang. A morning call I can do without. Home now sounds like every just about every other urban area in Australia. Is there an effective way of getting rid of them?

We now seem to have a resident Spotted Dove in Pickles Street.  Now constantly calling.  Nice call, very dovish.

A Spotted Dove inside the fenced area of Mulligans Flat today is the first I have seen in the reserve. While nothing else unusual, there was a lot of activity near the new toilet block including Varied Sitellas, Speckled Warblers and a pair of Yellow-rumped Thornbills lining the inside of their nest.
