Australian Raven, Wyperfield, Victoria, February 2006 - click for larger image It is distinguished from both Forest Raven and Little Raven by its shaggy throat hackles which are much longer than in the other two species. Photo 3 from Western Australia shows the sub-species C. c. perplexus which is slightly smaller and with shorter throat hackles than the nominate sub-species shown in photos 1 and 2.

It has a distinctive wailing, almost baby-like call.
