Hi Edwin,
I have had a few reports of Torresian Crows around the Newcastle area in the last few months. They appear to be extending their range southwards. Birders along the coast south from Newcastle have had it easy with corvids up till now, any corvid was automatically ticked as an Australian Raven. Looks like it's time to brush up on corvid ID as the TCs move south!

At Shortland (approx 180 km north of Sydney CBD and in the NSW Hunter region), I was surprised to hear and see 2 Torresian Crows which is as far south as I have ever encountered them. I have also seem them at Seaham (approx 20 km further north) which I thought was there southern limit. They are however a common corvid in the northern parts of the Hunter region, like Gloucester and Taree areas).
