  Ahoi all, 
On a recent lunch break in the Pilbara, just south of Karijini NP I heard a 
different call and inspected it to find this:

For those heading into that area, the spot is just off the main road a few kms 
from Hamersley Gorge. 
Coords: I can email them if you like, but do not expect an immediate, or even 
moderately speedy response. I'm in the field with sporadic internet access for 
the next month or so. The area is right on the main road and with a bit of 
gentle searching you should be able to locate them by call. Listen to the call 
a few times before you set off and you will find them easily. It's a very 
distinctive call. I definitely saw juveniles flying around: probably breeding 
in the area. I found them at several other sites around the joint (we were 
surveying nearby) so they are in the area. Also in the area: Flock Bronzewing 
Pigeons, but the areas I saw these are on private pastoral leases. Best of luck 
those who can get up into that part of the country soon. It's worth the effort, 
it's booming: insane numbers of diamond doves, crimson chats, budgies and 
little button quail. 
Best of luck!
