Artist's Description

The Torresian Crow is a large glossy black crow with short throat hackles (feathers). The feathers of the head and neck have white bases. The eye is white with a fine blue eye-ring. Immature birds are duller black with a brown eye. When landing, this species characteristically shuffles its wings. It will be seen outside breeding season in large flocks. It has also been called the Australian Crow.
The Torresian Crow shuffles its wings when landing at a perch. Its call is a nasal, staccato caw: ‘uk-uk-uk-uk’, usually more than three notes. Also harsher ‘arr-arr-arr’ aggressive call.
