Absolutely. The most visible difference is the lack of white on the nape of the neck. Magpies are white whereas currawongs are black. I always hear them before I ever see them (out in the bush anyway), so I know from their song what is what.
Also similar looking birds would be the Chough and black honeyeater.
Thanks for that mesmerizing video!I almost ignored this bird because I almost mistook it for a Magpie.
Hema, this is the bird that was the other possibility for your Torresian Crow spotting. Not quite as big, but the white underside is seen quite clearly. I usually encounter currawongs when I'm out bushwalking. They are a favourite and I love to hear and see them, but I don't often see them around town, and definitely not around my place. Do you remember their call? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gPCa53J... It's one of those unmistakable sounds of the Australian bush. Thanks for sharing :)
