With the Fruit-dove records in Victoria, it appears they are  mostly in 
autumn/winter and are therefore probably some form of post breeding dispersal?

Alternatively while hanging out in a fig tree up the coast they may have been 
talked into a road trip down south by a fast talking Spangled Drongo...

Sydney often appears to have juvenile Fruit Dove records in autumn/winter such 
as the one noted in May in Birdline where they must be overwhelmed by the 
lights of the big city and collide wth house windows.
