Judy queried a wet bird the size of a Raven and black which lost some snow white feathers. The bird also had a white eye and the base of all feathers around the head and neck were snow white. The bird did not call. Judy thought it was a Torresian Crow, due to the white in the feathers and the size of the bird.
Judy, are you aware that some Aust. Ravens can have white feathering at the base of their feathers rather than the 'normal' grey and Torr. Crows are, of course, much the same size as Aust. Ravens. Though it may not be an impossibility it is a longish way - "as the crow flies" from Kooragang Island to Royal NP for a range extension and there's a fair amount of un-Crow-like habitat between.
