Hema, have a look at the missions I've joined, and add your pics. Wildlife of Brisbane, Wilds of Southeast Queensland, Flora and Fauna of NSW, Birds of Australia, etc. The Wildlife of Brisbane mission may as well be my second profile, so it would be nice to have some fresh spottings that aren't mine.

Hard to tell from the photo, but my first choice would be a Torresian Crow (Corvus orru ssp. cecilae). They are very common around Brisbane. However, if there are any white feathers at all, mostly around the base and tip of the tail, it will be a Pied Currawong (Strepera graculina ssp. graculina). I can't see any at all, so I think stick with the crow.
