Australian Birds: Crested Pigeons (Ocyphaps lophotes)

These native pigeons visit my backyard. They're pretty shy, even when bribed with seed, and will only tolerate the camera for short periods of time.

At first it was only one,

 weighing up the camera angle vs. the food.

 When the camera didn't give chase,

 he gave the all-clear and a few of his friends came down to join him.

More information on top-knot pigeons can be found at the following sites:
