Curious, also Roger Williams also reported a Diamond Dove at JW on Friday. I
wonder if there is any connection. Would it (they) be wild or escaped birds?
They are a common aviary bird. One tiny hint (although not definitive) is
that wild Diamond Doves are usually neat looking, whereas captive ones are
commonly scruffy, because they are skittish.

This morning a Diamond Dove was seen along Mulligans Flat Road near where
the dirt section starts.

Also the usual White-fronted Chats at the Gundaroo Christmas Tree farm. I
see them pretty much each year.
