Nicobar Pigeon

re. Chris Lloyd’s question on ship assisted passage.

I would regard this as quite likely as I have had Nicobar Pigeons roosting on board ship in PNG waters on two occasions, once overnight and once for about 24 hours. There are many ships arriving in NW Australia that have passed through the species area of distribution in Indonesia.
