 Welcome to the first post of my Australian birds. This is  a pigeon I saw from the hotel window when I first opened the curtains. I had the view over the Esplanade and it was still early in the morning.
As far as I can tell this is a Torresian Imperial-Pigeon. This is the first and many more will come. The groups estimate of species during the trip was 320. In Costa Rica I managed to photograph 3 out of 5 species. If I made the same no now I might have 200 species when I´m done. But, I count everyone I can identify so all is not that great a photograph.
