Stumped in Tennessee

We have a bird here in Middle TN that we can't figure out what it is thru other internet sites. It's head & chest are light green and the back/tail is grayish brown. (?) It appears to be similar to the Junco but can't get a pic as it flies away when we get near the window. Also, it appears to be a ground feeder as it's always at the corner of our deck on the ground. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanx for any/all info as it would be greatly appreciated! VKC

Checked out the site but didn't look like the bird we have seen. We have plenty of identifiable wrens but this one was strangely colored. Maybe a mutant from the nuclear plant. Haha! Thanks for the link.

Sounds like it could be . . . NEW

a Carolina Wren . . . at least that is the bird I often get confused with a Junco. Take a look at http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Carolina_Wren/id and see what you think. If not take a look at junco on that same site and have a look at similar species and see if you can find a match that way!

Good Luck!
