Name that bird - backyard visitors

It's no secret that parts of Australia are experiencing dire flooding. Other parts of Australia, particularly along the eastern seaboard, are experiencing lots of rain which, in addition to boosting the population of frogs, mice and other small creatures has seen certain species of birds paying a visit.

Who can name this pair? They were spotted in the Blue Mountains far, we suspect, from home. We're thinking some species of native pigeon (male and female?), possibly harking from a rainforest area?

  1. Those are white-headed pigeons - actually quite common along the east coast.
