Hi Graham,
         The furthest west I can give you is the Flinders Ranges (SA) in
1991. All the creeks were nearly dry so I don't think a dry area would
worry a Blackbird. They are in plaque proportions in Devonport.

But oh how things have changed, and I shouldn't have been too surprised.
Last year I saw some in Ivanhoe, central NSW. This is the last place I
would have expected to see them, very dry. Does anyone have record for
this species further west? Or does anyone know if the birds dispersed
during a wet season or is it just a slow expansion. 

Graham Turner
