Little Raven is a slight possibility

I think that Australian Raven is a safe identification although technically Little Raven may be possible and is hard to separate except by call.

According to the ALA mapping tool (http://spatial.ala.org.au/), the Atlas of Living Australia currently has access to 2120 records assigned to Australian Raven within 20km of Parsley Bay and only 10 assigned to Little Raven, and all of these latter were between August and November. Hence a March record is almost certainly Corvus coronoides.
