White-headed Pigeons witnessed at Rogers Reserve

5th May 2016


Three native White-Headed Pigeons (Columba leucomela) were witnessed at the Charles & Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve on the afternoon of Thursday 5th May 2016.  The sirens of the bush, the Noisy Miners alerted us to their location, high in the gum trees on the north eastern side of the reserve. It wasn't long before the pigeons moved onto thicker trees on the western side, albeit with the noisy miners in tow.  Unfortunately no photographs were taken due to their quick retreat and high habitat location.

This is a new bird record for the wildlife list at the reserve and has been added to Eremaea eBird data mapping.
