Is this a member of Raven family ?

I took pictures of this bird this morning at Brisbane QLD. It looks like a Black Butcherbird. Is it ? I noted some white marking under tail and black eye.

Thats a Cicadabird, not a member of the raven family.

Where in Brisbane did you see this one tracviet? I don't have this one ticked off my list.

Cheers Devster

We live in a surburb west of Brisbane Devster. Most of these birds I only see for the first time. After 8 weeks of walking around they may get used to my present and possibly come out as they no longer see me as a threat.

I also live in a suburb west of Brisbane, well North West actually. I live in Samford. I have never seen the Cicadabird. I'm always happy to show people around sometime if you are interested.

Hi Devster,

I am half way through bird surveying by photos on my property. Perharps early next year it will become clear on what I am going to do next.
