Hi Laurie,

If it looked like a Bassian it was a Song Thrush. They do like to fossick in gardens and on lawns and are known to follow gardeners around looking for easy pickings. Immature blackbirds are still much darker in colour, more like a female, than the buffish white with distinct arrowhead streaks underneath of the Song Thrush.
