The Grey Butcherbird is sort of common (and likely increasing) in woodland and suburban Canberra but still less common than say in Melbourne. One in city centre is I would suggest, still an unusual event. The Pied Butcherbird is rare here. The latter is far less likely.

Observed bird sitting on a pole whilst waiting at lights in Civic on Thursday.
Unsure whether Pied or Grey.
Used to be quite unusual in Canberra.  Not sure these days?
