And then I saw this very little bird, half robin's size, which I've never seen before, could it possibly be a wren I wonder

I've seen it before pecking other pigeons, its clearly of aggressive nature, but never starlings. On top of that, another problem is their numbers (pigeons) have increased dramatically, and now there is a flock of at least 20 of them all over my garden, which drives me absolutely mad. I don't know what to do to get rid of them . I spent all afternoon getting out in the garden and shooing them away, but that scares other birds too
