CommentIts hard to quickly identify between the Grey & the Black Currawongs here. But the call of the Black is a deep throaty call like a vintage car's hooter to me, very different from the clinking of the Grey.
The other main identifier is the bill shape. The Black has a huge bill with a convex or domed upper surface - it must really pack a punch. Endemic to Tasmania.
