On behalf of Kelly who sent in an email:-

Blackbird size-ish. Brown upper feathers chest paler and speckled shapes. Pinkish legs. Mark on neck.. Eating bread and pineapple.. 

Thought it was a mistle or song thrush as the pictures showing a blackbird fledgling or female do not have pinkish legs and this bird was independently eating and not having a fluffy down.

Hi Kelly.

This is a Song Thrush. A quick search will soon show lots of images with pink legs.

A Mistle Thrush would be more pale in colour with darker speckles. Hope this helps.
