I'm surprised that you recorded no other species. Australian Raven is very
common around townsville, though perhaps not as common as Torresian (yet?).
It seems to me that AR's are on the increase but not displacing the Crows.
I'm not sure if Ravens like to nest on these powerpoles but they certainly
nest sympatrically with crows.
