Can someone tell me what bird this is?



We live in central Missouri and have a bird living in a planter on our front porch, so I don't want to move it. I haven't seen this bird nesting around our house before, and am unfamiliar with it. It appears to have laid 6 eggs, all are cream with brown spots, except one, which is light blue with brown spots. Thanks for your help!

This is where the nest is on our front porch, inside the planter and underneath the wooden things.

    Thank you Vicki! I think you're right. I looked up a wren identification guide, and it looks like a Bewick's Wren. We have lots of robins, sparrows, cardinals, and a few blue birds nesting around our house, but I don't recall ever having any wrens. Thanks a bunch!
