Thank you so much, we thought they were House Sparrows but the photos didn't match up. English 'Black Redstart' and in French 'Rouge-Queue Noir'. Some weeks ago we noticed they seemed to be having problems when they first started building the nest so my husband constructed a little wooden platform on the beam to give them some support, we were not sure how they would like that but lo and behold they took to it immediately. The pair are marvelous to observe, their were 3 or 4 chicks testing their wings and we expect them to leave the roost any day. We have a cat and every time he gets in their vicinity, the parents click away and fly over him hovering almost like they want to peck him.

red tail? NEW
by: Anonymous

If when it flies, it shows a flash of orangey red tail feathers, it might be a redtail, or in French rouge-queue (or maybe the other way round); Looks like a female redstart. Makes a kind of crackly chirp, like a radio, as well as its other range, also has a bobbing movement.
