An introduced species should not be of such concern as native species. However, it would merit thought if the decline of the introduced species is an early warning of decline in the indigenous species (for example a worsening drought kills off the species that are not as well adapted to drought before the natives start to die).
My understanding is that the Bassian Thrush was much more common in what is now the urban part of the ACT before Common Blackbirds arrived. and that they did compete for resources.
