After I added to the posts this morning about Bar shouldered Doves in south coast NSW, I have become interested in the likelihood of more records of this species turning up in the ACT.  The COG website describes them as a non breeding vagrant and notes single birds in three locations in Canberra in 2015 and 2016.  These same records are also on eBird. 
But given they are spreading south along the coast, and also that there are a few eBird records for Penrose, Moss Vale, Bundanoon and Goulburn over the last five or so years, then maybe ACT birders should keep an extra sharp eye and ear out for this species locally.  They look a bit like a Spotted Dove in flight, so I for one will be alert to them into the future.
