I have seen Pied Currawongs doing the quivery wing behaviour but it hasn't always been followed by copulation. At times it has occurred while there were still chicks in a nearby nest (but no second brood resulted).
I've never seen Ravens behaving like this. However the HANZAB account for Little Raven includes reference to wing quivering prior to copulation. That also mentions providing sticks as a nuptial gift rather than food. So possibly Australian Ravens have the same behaviour or you had a less common visitor!
