Noticed in your notes that you've recorded this sighting at Aldinga Wetlands, but on the map, you've pinned it at Belair? Could you please correct this so we can get accurate data? Thanks.

The abundance range is too much for this species. Crested Pigeons are abundant at this time of year (predominantly around Adelaide/Suburban areas in South Australia), but there aren't many records of these birds with numbers ranging between 101-1000; were all these birds sighted at the same time, or was this recorded over simultaneous days? Thanks.
