To answer David's question: they mainly used tail feathers of Crimson Rosellas, as well as, it has been reported, the occasional dead male blue wren (as in Superb Fairy-wren).
I have Australian Ravens building a nest in the big tree in my yard, last week and this week. I prefer these to the Currawongs, either species has nested in this tree every year for the past about 15 years. To link to a previous item, one of the two ravens has at least one all white secondary feather in its right wing.
