Hi Penny and other birders,
Topknot Pigeons feed on the fruit of many different plants, both introduced as well as native, so the reason for their flocking in your area could be the fruiting of both Cabbage Tree and Bangalow Palms, both privet and Camphor Laurel, Lilli Pillis and Cryptocaryia trees. In November of each year on the NSW Central Coast, they feed in littoral rainforest where they particularly seek out the fruits of Hard Corkwood (Endrianda seiberii), however the big flocks here at present 100-150+ are feeding on Camphor Laurel berries although the palms were a favourite food in March.
