What thrush is this?

This bird was seen in a garden in Emerald, Victoria. As you can see it is about the size of a Crimson Rosella. Is it a Song Thrush?

It looks like a bower bird to me

I think it is a female Satin Bower bird, they can be quite destructive in the garden picking of flowers that they don't seem to eat.

When it is flowers on the Tomatoes it can be annoying.

Nice find.  I've never seen a bower bird in the Dandenong Ranges, but I have heard that they are there.
