  • Coracina novaehollandiae
  • Adult birds have a prominent black face and throat, grey plumage, white underparts and a somewhat hooked bill. They are slow-moving, inconspicuous birds, with a scratchy call sounding like “creearck”. Undulating flight, and characteristic shuffling of wings on landing.
