Here is my guess. ............ An egg of a Rock Dove would look quite similar to an egg of a Crested Pigeon. I think it does look like a pigeon’s egg – or a parrot’s egg. It could have been hatched there or transported by a currawong or raven.........

Found this egg shell in my vegie garden this morning. It wasn't there
