What bird is this

(Pikeville, Tn)


It is about 3 to 4 inches tall and still has the fine baby feathers on its body and long black and brown tail feathers. I have not touched it so can only see its' back.

I agree that the tail feathers look like some form of wren.

Thanks for the responses. Got a better look at it and it is a Carolina Wren.

Looks like a Carolina wren . They're known to perch on ledges like this.

Was thinking that it was a wren also, just did not know about that particular one. Finally got a good look but did not get a better pic, it is a Carolina Wren. Thanks for helping.

It's a wren, such as a Carolina wren. But species depends on where you live. These like to perch under roofs on ledges.
