What kind of bird is this?
(St. Charles, Mo. )
Early Bird, Catching the Rising Sun
I live in Missouri and captured a photo of a bird with black belly with white spots on it and Tannish/Grey head and body, black spot in front of eye. Brownish/Tan, well defined "outlines" of each feather o it's black wings and red on its lower portion of it's legs and feet, has normal/short legs. And has a narrow slender beak, beak is sort of on the longer side. It was perching in the backyard area, of the neighbors A-frame above their door.. There was also another that went over to perch there, it seems they must be abundant in this area, I've always loved birds, and have had birds my entire life.. pet birds.. and yet I do not know much of wild birds. However, when searching images of Missouri birds, I cannot find an image of this bird.. Any help would be greatly appreciated..
Thank you ever so much,
