Bird sleeps in eaves of our porch

A small, dark, fuzzy looking bird with spots gets in the corner of our porch eaves every evening--back to us, head buried in body, small tail sticking out. Grayish with lighter spots. What is this?

We have a fluffy spotted little bird in the corner of our porch, too! We live in the city, but our area is heavily wooded.

Greyish brown porch roosting bird
by: Anonymous

We live in semi-rural suburbs in NW Florida and have same type of very small greyish brown bird ( don't know if baby or not ). that sleeps in corner of covered porch. It barely has room to perch and faces the inside of the corner. It has very long thin beak and does not stir at all when we turn on lighted porch fan to let the dog out in the evenings. We don't know what it is either.

City Bird or Country Bird ?

It may be easier to identify the bird if you can tell people if you (and your porch) are in a city or in a more rural or wooded area.

Thanks.
