Who Am I?

Seriously, this guy showed up with the Nuthatch Nation (tm) the other day. He's been hanging around the yard and is more excited about the pole on which the feeder is mounted, than the actual feeder or food. He also likes kicking around in the bare dirt. I know the photo is of his rump, but you get the picture.

He's pretty small, about 3.5", and has a short warble for a song. He doesn't quite sing the "Cheeseburger" song of the Carolina wren, but yet, I am thinking he's a Carolina wren. His bill isn't right for a brown creeper, either (would have been my next guess). Any opinions on this?

Also, here's one of the Nuthatch Nation (tm). They are here all day, every day now, apparently. Whatever that is about.
