Cute very small brown fury bird rooting on the porch at night

by Frank Martin

Small bird, fury looking feathers, brown and tan with white tips, dark brown tail feathers. Roosts on top of a post under our porch roof at night. Usually appears late afternoon to early evening, and then is gone by early morning. Always faces the corner (like Dennis the Menace) so we've never seen its face. I have seen other postings by people in Florida. We are in central Virginia. This bird first started to appear in late Fall. It was great to see him (or her) on Christmas eve and Christmas night. Does anyone know what it is? Is there anything we can do to help it out considering cold weather is fast approaching?


Thanks,

Frank

Thank you for the response! Through further research and reading we found out that it is a Carolina Wren. Still wondering, though, if we should attempt to put out any feed for it. I want to help it out, but don't want to run it off from its cozy roosting place.
