In haste at present, but just an ob on blackbirds outside towns; they
certainly do colonise undisturbed habitats. In my experience, these include
at least montane wet eucalypt gullies in the Brindabellas (west of
Canberra), tall wet sclerophyll in Errinundra (NE Victoria) and coastal dune
heath on Younghusband Peninsula, Coorong, south of the Murray mouth in SA.

I don't regard them as at all benign, even in suburban gardens where they
are aggressive to other low understorey birds.
