What kind of bird is this?

This tiny little grey bird with long thin beak sleeps in my porch eave every night. I thought maybe he was injured but took flight when I got close. It hasn't built a nest and just curls up on an old non working misting hose. I would like to know what kind of bird this is and if I can make it more comfortable.
