Since blackbirds in Eng. are a thrush they act like the Am. robin which is also a thrush. One guide told me that a common question from American tourists is 'why are your robins black"? Of course the robins in Britain are a different class of bird. an English friend was watching one of the Am robins in disbelief. I had to tell him that they were named 'robin' because of the red breasts by homesick English colonial settlers.
