OK I stand corrected about Blackbirds taking up residence in some areas of se Australiam well away from urban areas.

However I have never seen a Blackbird in any area of undisturbed Wet Forest in se Australia, and note that Carol Proberts points out that in the Blue Mountains it is doubtful if they inhabit such habitats.

The reference to Barrington Tops is worrying, if they learn to get into Rainforest then they'll be everywhere up to se Queensland and beyond.

However this might point to an important point, Rainforest might support them, but it might be that Wet Forest in its undisturbed state is not suitable for them.
