which is close to the dead tree where the others are perched.

Incidentally, just for completing the "set" of local native Pigeons, these birds are very different from the Crested Pigeons which we see in the main street of Robertson and along the railway line. They are a small Pigeon, and exclusively grain feeders. They have probably followed the grain trains (which run down to the ethanol factory at Bomaderry, and sometimes for export via Port Kembla). These small Crested Pigeons are definitely not "natural" to the habitat of Robertson. I never see them at my house, although I am only 500 metres from the railway line. But they do hang around the human-dominated centre of the village and the railway line.
