Mystery resolved

Catherine Zinsky
 

Thanks to everyone who so kindly replied.  It's decided: my mystery bird is a Pin-tailed Wydah.  Apparently this bird is an African escapee that parasitizes the Scaly-breasted Munia.  And it looks so innocent.

Again, all input was gratefully appreciated.

Happy birding!
