1970s Book? Little girl has a pet crow and helps stone it to death?

When I was in middle school, I read (or maybe it was read to me) a book in which a girl had a pet crow. She loved the crow dearly, but one day, a group of peers followed her home and she showed them the crow. They started throwing rocks at it and the girl got caught up in the crowd frenzy and started throwing rocks at it, too. She helped the other kids stone her crow to death.  Horribly burned into my little, impressionable head.. but I can't remember the name of the book. Anyone familiar with it?
