Hi Birders,
Graham Turner ask about records of Diamond Doves in the Sydney Region. While in the past, notably in 1897 and 1942 Diamond Doves during drought years were reported in small flocks in parts of Sydney, in recent years only single birds have occasionally been sighted. As Diamond Doves usually move north out of NSW in winter, and Diamond Doves are common avairy birds, I would treat any records of single birds in the Sydney and Central Coast Regions as avairy excapees.
