I was a bit surprised by "Large crow noticed". It should rather be "Small
crow noticed". House Crow is with 41-43 cm length smaller than any
Australian corvid. (Escaped) Hooded and Mesopotamian Crow may fit the
description better. However, pigment aberrations are well known in
corvids. So, why not a 'funny' Little Raven?
