Strepera graculina.

This Pied Currawong thought our lunch of roast chicken in a bun looked mighty tasty.

    Yeah they have great beady eyes :)
    Indeed - dark though - iso3200 on all shots today.
    Well it was falling from the sky at least. I don't think I've ever been to Bunya Mountains when it didn't rain at least once while there.
    Thanks Alexandra :)

  • David de Groot said:
    I don't think it was a young one, I think it'd fluffed it's feathers a bit against the cold and wet (15C at Bunya yesterday).
    hehehe :P I haven't had a lot of time to go birding lately.
