Birdline North Queensland

Published sightings for the week ending 5 Aug 2012.

Wed 18 Jul Crested Pigeon Moondarra Accommodation Village, Mt Isa
Among a group of about 20 Crested Pigeons feeding near the entrance at this caravan park was a pair of strikingly different but beautiful dark brown birds with chestnut on the neck. They were smaller in size (about 90%) and had deep red skin around the eyes and legs rather than the dark pink on normal birds. (melanistic?)
