I was really pleased to find (or if the truth be told, be shown) these birds when I was in Kakadu. These birds are Chestnut-quilled rock pigeons. Rather confusingly their scientific name, Petrophassa rufipennis, means 'red-winged rock pigeon' - now I wish taxonomists would make up their mind's!
This bird has a very restricted distribution, only being found in a small part of Western Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. These birds were all drinking from a dripping tap in carpark at Ubirr.
Hardly a wilderness experience, but another example of the birdwatching adventures that can be found in unexpected places!
