Hi all

My resident Crested Pigeons have been very sneaky indeed.

On Monday evening they came into roost in the thick shrubbery around the base 
of a large eucalypt, a site where they have bred multiple times in the past. 
However, there were three birds, with one being a brand new juvenile, about 
three quarters the size of the adults. They have managed to raise young as we 
run into winter. And I didn’t even notice.
