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?

very small bird with very loud song, grey-taupe sort of colours, erect tail - sounds to me like you have a pair of wrens - lucky you

    Can you help me identify a bird I saw last week that I've not seen before? It was eating berries in a dogwood tree in North Central Washington state.
