Small brown bird with black beak and zig zag strips on chest. It has no white around its head. Has some white in wings. He ran into my kitchen window so I went outside and it was jerking. I put it in my hand and it just laid there for a while. I was stroking its back very gently and it stopped jerking. After a bit it stood up on its feet, but stayed in my hand. Then it fell asleep so I let it sit there for about 5 minutes. I tried to pick it up and put in on the ground to see what it would do. It flew and caught on the edge of my T shirt and then flew off into the woods. I can't find anything exactly it in any of my bird books.
