Birds of Toowoomba - Crested Pigeon.

 Crested Pigeon
(Toowoomba cemetery, December 29, 2010)

I was going to do a single post about the common birds of Toowoomba but realised it would end up being huge. So anyway, I'll occasionally post one species at a time.

I thought Crested Pigeon is a good place to start. I like these pictures and think that Crested Pigeons are delightful birds that can easily be seen in Toowoomba. They're often seen sitting on power-lines or house-hold TV aerials looking like their crest is working as part of the service, sending and receiving signals from/to somewhere.
