pied currawong with red eye??

Took this quick shot from the balcony in the 30 second break between gale force winds and rain.
I thought it was a pied currawong but it has a red eye instead of yellow. A noisy group of about 6 seemed to be bullying the maggies and Rosellas....

Hi Heva
It is definitely a Pied Currawong. White tips to the tail and white rump and sign of white wing patch rule out Grey Currawong.
I do not see a "red" eye - perhaps darker orange than normal, but that could just be a feature of the light.
When I red the caption, I was expecting to see a White-winged Chough, but that is clearly not the case.
