Today my partner and I accidently flushed a large pigeon from a small leafy
tree in Mornningside Park, Brisbane, in an area where the pale headed
Rosellas normally feed. We only caught a quick glimpse of it as it flew away
& perched (back facing us), then it flew one more time into a bigger, even
>From behind it looked almost completely slate grey or black, which faded
into a more buff colour at the top of its head. Its wings made a distinctive
sound when we flushed it; not quite as loud as a Crested pigeon's `wing
flap', but still loud and distinctive.
Any ideas what this could be? From my bird guide, the possibilities seem to
be either a Wonga pigeon, or a female white headed pigeon?
Thanks for your help!
