Today, i went for a quick look down at Hospital Swamp, Connewarre Victoria. and counted 17 Crested Pigeons in a group. The highest number i've seen down there so far.
After first seeing them, a group of four flew away from the main group. One of the group of four started to make a display, by fanning its tail feathers, ducking its head and 'performing' to another crested pigeon. Is this some type of mating ritual? Or another type of display?
