Last season a pair of crested Pigeons raised two clutches of young in our Prunus tree, which is on the nature strip here at Forde. Over winter, occasionally, I fed the pair some seed in our driveway. They would be waiting there every now and then, cooing and flicking their wings when I went out. This morning I found the end of a small white egg which had been left on our front step. This could be coincidence but I think the message is we need more food now.


The Prunus tree doesn’t have leaves yet so I suspect their nest is in a young bushy gum tree over the road. The same tree has two active Yellow-rumped Thornbill nests in it, so it is quite popular. Probably a reflection of the lack of good nesting trees in the area.
