Sleeping Beauty

A dark colored very small, long tailed bird bundles up under my porch ceiling only at night. No nest. Tail hangs straight down. Comes at night. Gone in morning.

And.... It happens same time every year. Only one bird. Same spot each night. Never see a head.

My son lives in Longwood Florida & has the exact same experience since he moved into the Longwood house about 4 years ago, same time of year & same spot up high on top of a white pillar support on front porch. Arrives in early evening & leaves first thing in A.M.Dark fluffy feathers, perches backwards with tail hanging down, never seen the head!

Greetings from Saraland NEW

We have the same kind of bird here in Saraland, AL. Every summer into the mid fall, this same little guy visits. Does anyone know what this is?
I have looked at this little fellow for several years now and am still scratching my head :)

My back patio light has a side that is out & every night I have a sparrow go in that enclosure & sleep. I am surprised by the length of time he stays in there & sleeps in the colder nights. I had no idea birds slept that much.

    Can you help me identify a bird I saw last week that I've not seen before? It was eating berries in a dogwood tree in North Central Washington state.
