Wild guess: Woodpecker.

However, post at http://www.whatbird.com/forums/forums/10/ShowForum.aspx and you'll certainly get an answer.

Is it just the flash reflecting or is the lower bird blind in the right eye?

PS: Sorry, can't help with the ID.

Hi roy,

My guess is the Carolina wren, based on the beak, eye marking and the size you mentioned. Plus you probably haven't "noticed" them during the day because they are secretive. It's kinda hard to tell definitively without seeing the belly markings.

This site has a recording of their voice. Maybe you've heard this call during the day.

It is indeed a Carolina wren. Here's a [picture the other half took of a mama who briefly visited our tornado shed in Lee County TX.
