Large black bill
White tipped wings and tail
When I initially saw these birds, I automatically thought of ravens. Their large size and black plumage certainly are raven-like. However, a few things gave them away. First was the white on their tails and wings, and second was the yellow eyes. And finally, their call is much less grating than a raven's, whose call really is quite comical.
The Black Currawong is one of twelve species of birds that are endemic to Tasmania. This means they are found nowhere else on earth.
