Unknown bird at our watering station - South of Rochester

Recommended Posts

My almost 6-year-old bird-watching daughter saw this new-to-us bird today.  She said it was acting territorial at the water, spreading its wings out when a house sparrow came over (seen flying away in top picture).  The bird was larger than an adult house sparrow.  There was an impression of some hint of blue-grey under the wing and on the back.  It had subtle brownish-red streaks on the breast. As always your help is much appreciated!
