What Kind of bird

by Pam Emerson
(Elkhart, Indiana)

I couldn't get a picture. There were 2 small birds on my deck. I heard their pretty voice before I saw them. They had greyish belly not sure about the rest of their color. But instead of their tail feathers pointing downward, they were going up. There was one at each end of my deck looking like little sentinels. Any ideas?
