    I vote for "маленькая птица"

    птица is feminine so "маленький птица" is gramatically incorrect.
    небольшая is "not big" so "небольшая птица" is "not-big bird"
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I'd say "маленькая птичка".
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.
