While we were cycling up the Barton Highway this morning near Gungahlin, we saw an Australian Raven with a pure white tail feather, the full length of the feather being white. With the exception of this tail feather, the rest of the bird was the normal glossy black. It flew across about 10m in front of us and landed on the median strip. It definitely wasn’t a Pied Currawong – there was no white other than this one feather, and it was much glossier than a currawong and had the raven’s throat ruff.
