Hi Rod, and all
Great bird, the Bar shouldered Dove. Modestly (but prettily) plumaged and with that call that is so evocative of northern Australia. I had a quick look at eBird and find there are records of the species all the way down the coast as far as Tathra. Records are somewhat clumped around places like Batemans Bay, Durras, Wallaga, Broulee and Tuross - likely reflecting the number of birders rather than number of birds. Interestingly, Pizzey notes their range as only as far south as the Illawarra, but that they are increasing. Sure are.

This may be of interest to folks travelling to the coast over Christmas.
