Up there as one of my favourite birds, the Pied Currawong is "a large, mostly black bird, with a bright yellow eye. Small patches of white are confined to the under tail, the tips and bases of the tail feathers and a small patch towards the tip of each wing (visible in flight). The bill is large and black and the legs are dark grey-black. Both sexes are similar, although the female may sometimes be greyer on the underparts." (Birdlife Australia)

As I was trying to get photos of the Eastern Whipbird, this character started checking out what I was doing. Along with Butcherbirds and Magpies, the Pied Currawong has a magical carolling sound - it is just beautiful :) Check out this website which has recordings of their song and calls: https://wildambience.com/wildlife-sounds...
