    We have a gum tree in our yard and in its a nest of 2 baby chicks which look very much like a crested pigeon, yesterday one fell out and so my hubby picked him up and put him back on the tree so no cats could get him (we have a cat and she loves birds). The mother was hanging about, she a good mum, we both enjoy watching these birds progress as we havent seen these around theses parts, BTW we live in Ballarat Victoria! Please email me in what we should do to help these birds if required?

    Hi Sue,

    Thanks for your comments. They are beautiful birds and we have them nesting in our garden here in Murray Bridge (1 hour east of Adelaide) all year round it seems.

    In your area they are gradually moving south so I’m not surprised you haven’t seen them before. This has happened throughout Victoria. Ten to 20 years ago you would have had to travel as far north as Swan Hill to see this species as it has been primarily a dryland bird. They are becoming increasingly common in Melbourne suburbs but were rare there as recent as 10 years ago. same story in Canberra and other parts of NSW where they are moving east. Here in SA they have now reached the SE coast, a move south of 150km in the last 20 years.

    They are doing really well in establishing themselves in new areas so there is nothing special you can do for them – except try to keep cats away – and enjoy!
