Hi Kurtis,

I recently had the chance to visit Lake Eda in the Broome region to
look for Flock Bronzewing (which I dipped on), but did observe a flock
of Crested Pigeons that would have numbered around 50 birds.  There
were several large flocks in close proximity that probably would have
totalled almost 200 birds.  I've never seen that many anywhere else
before, and the current drought in the area could have contributed to
the large concentration, but the area is definitely "native habitat".
