brown bird that is shaped like a junco

I just noticed a small brown bird at my feeder today. It has a brown body, tan chest and belly, short tail that is held upright and jerks when the bird moves, it looked like it had a red stripe on its head but I couldn't see that for sure. It is small, rounded belly.

Your description sounds like some kind of wren. If its tail was very short, I would guess a Winter Wren.
