Fearless Little Bird
I live in the northwest sector of the city of Washington, DC. A few years ago we had crows everywhere. Then a new bird came. It is the size of a starling, but a bit smaller. It has the color of a sparrow, except it has a significant white stipe across its wingspan and its tail. When it perches, its long tail points upward. This bird is fearless! It chased away the crows - we haven't seen any since this bird came along. I have seen it chase other birds (especially the crows)squirrels and cats. It's a lovely bird; does anyone have an idea of what it could be?
