Sounds & Calls
Pied Currawong (Strepera graculina)
Named for the often-heard “curra-wong” call, Pied Currawongs make a range of other vocalisations including loud ringing calls, gurgles and whistles. This species exhibits quite distinct local dialects, with populations less than fifteen kilometres apart having been recorded with noticeably different calls.
In autumn and winter, Pied Currawongs often form flocks, especially if there is a concentration of food around such as a fruiting tree. These feeding flocks often call noisily, creating a rich chorus of whistles and ‘curra-wong’ calls.
