Hi there Birders,

On Tuesday I observed a very tame Collared Turtle-dove in our garden in Murray Bridge South Australia. It behaved very much like it was an aviary release or escapee but remained too high in the tree for me to catch it.

This is the first time I have seen this species and would like confirmation of its ID.
