Author's notes

I saw a Crested Pigeon perched in a dead tree. I thought the bird was by itself. I then realised there were three more birds on the southern branches of the tree. One by one, all four birds flew off to the south. A short while later there must have been a disturbance at the dam as a number of Crested Pigeons took off from the area around the dam. I could not see them on the ground around the dam, I only saw them when I heard the noise of their wings all flapping together. The birds seemed to take off in several waves heading to one tree, with other Crested Pigeons flying to the same tree from different directions. When I counted the birds in the tree there were at least 30 birds in the tree. They appeared to be relaxed there, with most of them preening themselves.
