That sounds more likely to be an adult Little Eagle, with a pale underside. The fledglings are rufous and the observer would have likely noted that when they saw it.
Little Eagles can cover several kilometres or more when hunting and they are over suburbia more frequently than people might think. They can hunt from soaring or a perch in a tree, and I have seen one in a tree outside my house, but they can be easily overlooked when sitting quietly in a tree. That one was probably doing so before the currawongs found and drew attention to it.
Birds are known in the area
