Default bird identification? wren?

this bird appeared on my feeder and I have not seen one before. I am thinking it is some kind of wren based on the distinct pattern on the feathers, but the white strip above the eyes would point to a type of wren that isn't normally found this far north (Southern NH - woodlands) maybe a winter wren with slightly different markings?

Yes it looks like a Carolina Wren which lives throughout the eastern US.

Guess my bird book is out of date it doesn't have them north of nj, Wikipedia on the other hand shows them clearly in my neck of the woods. Makes sense too given last years lack of winter that they might be new visitors at the feeder. This shot was pushing the iso on my camera, I will have to try for a better one if I get the chance.
