Pied Currawong ( Strepera graculina)

Taking off...

 

Australian bird Pied Currawong ( Strepera graculina)

of Cracticidae family, like Magpies and Butcherbirds; active predators.

 

It looks like a crow, it is size as a crow, but it is not. Even the bird family is different.

In opposite to crow it has very beautiful distinctive voice – mellow guttural wailing
