I have followed this thread with interest.
'Shy and skulking' - well, yes, often.  Squawking away with horrible noises when disturbed, yes.  And they are the most horrid diggers up of gardens, and spreaders of leaves and dirt etc on garden paths.
BUT - not brilliant songsters???
Every year, come Spring here on the Adelaide plains, a blackbird sings his heart out most beautifully every evening from his perch atop my TV aerial - totally disregarding anything which is going on in the garden below or on the street outside (and it happens to be a busy street - it's even a bus route).  This glorious late afternoon/evening song is a highlight of the season.
