Bird ID if any happen to know. Eastern appalachians, approx 2000 feet elevation.
Bird was no more than 3 inches long. I feel it is a juvenile of some kind.
I was in the backyard feeding the haws and this little one landed 6 feet away and begged
for a portrait.

It's tail says wren of some type but not much else does. I'm not sure.

Nice shot MM, but no clue as to what it is.

Very nice shot, Greg. I'm certain that's a tasty looking meal to some.

It was quite interesting to watch. For the worms, they would take them onto nearby cut log and bash them until dead or suitably tenderized for the babies.

Nice shot! 99% sure this is a House Wren. There are few US birds as small as 3" (or thereabouts) and it sure isn't a kinglet. The barred undertail coverts are right and House Wren can show a dark upper mandible and pale lower mandible as seen here. Also, they can look quite long tailed at times, as in the link here: https://www.sdakotabir​ds.com/species/house_w​ren_info.htm (external link)

Excellent shot Greg. I would love to have had a ring side seat to watch their tenderizing routine.

Very nice shot Geoff. That pretty green blurred background really make the Brown Thrasher stand out.
