Tiny wren - Southeastern Utah, USA

This little buddy was foraging around under my hedge this morning. It's tinier than a black-capped chickadee (also present), and doesn't have the strong white eyebrow of a Bewick's wren (it's smaller than one of those, too). I want to confirm that this is a House Wren...? Apologies for the bad photos. The thing was spastic!

Thanks for help!

I’d have thought House Wren that should be the default wren for your region?, it also looks longer tailed and more attenuated than Winter Wren which would be quite scarce thereabouts.

Thanks for the confirmation, Microtus and KenM! I thought so. I've seen them here before, just never in my yard.
