Hi Tim,

Can not help with your area, but I have lived in outer Western Sydney and
the Lower Blue Mountains for the past 30 years since arriving from the UK,
so I know what a European Blackbird looks like. Until 1999 I had never seen
a single example, however when we moved in to this house, I spotted one in
the back yard.

Now, when walking alongside the Nepean River, I can see around 50 every day,
they seem to have exploded in this area in the past 5 years or so.

Best regards - Mike
Penrith, NSW, Australia
