CommentAt bird bath in our front yard at Robe. Common blackbird also known as Eurasian blackbird was introduced by Melbourne bird dealer in early n1857. Sought after for its song. Considered a pest by orchardists. I like the detail in this photograph, particularly the gape of the juvenile bird. The dark green boceh works well with the brown tones of the plumage.
