Pied Currawong

The Pied Currawong (Strepera graculina) is sized about 41 – 51 centimetres with a black coloured body. It has large white crescent-shaped patches on its wings and its under-tail coverts with the base and tip of the tail being white.

It has a robust bill with a well-defined hook.

The Pied Currawong’s voice is a noisy very distinctive ring double call “curra-wong”.

The habitat of the Pied Currawong consists of open and low open forest, woodlands, agricultural and urban lands.

For reference I consult the Simpson & Day Field Guide to the Birds of Australia. I have the fifth edition, however I believe there is now a sixth edition.
