- I made a very brief visit to Mitchell Park before heading of the Pitt Town and was surprised to see a Topknot Pigeon land in the crown of a tall eucalypt beside Cattai Creek.It stayed there for at least 10 minutes preening itself offering nice views. I don't see them that often in western Sydney but I did see about half a dozen birds several years ago at nearby Cattai NP. Also at Mitchell Park this afternoon was a Wonga Pigeon (heard), several Common Bronzewings and Peaceful Doves, lots of Olive-backed Orioles and Satin Bowerbirds etc. Reported by Edwin Vella. Sighting 9797, Mitchell Park, Cattai (north-western Sydney).
Are you submitting a complete checklist of the birds you were able to identify?
