As for the theory that Crested Pigeons might drive out Spotted
Turtle-doves, I seem to remember that both were common in Brisbane: the CPs
stuck to open areas (like sports ovals) with native vegetation nearby, and
the STDs stuck to gardens and more vegetated places, often amongst exotic
bushes and trees.

Well, that's hwat I remember anyway.
