Crested Pigeon

I see this Crested Pigeon ( Ocyphaps lophotes ) nearly every day, and I call it the bird with the punk haircut. The bird was once apparently only restricted  to the Aussie inland region but has now slowly moved to all Australian cities. The bird, spends a lot of time on this TV antenna and I have seen it ferociously hunt away other birds that occupy its perch during its absence. Quite shy of humans and it took quite many days for the bird to get used to my presence.
