Does anyone recognize this bird?

I'm sorry that this video and these pictures are not high quality. Keep in mind that I took these through my not-so-clean kitchen window. I'm not trying to win an award from Birds and Blooms; I'm just trying to identify this bird. I've been watching Cardinals, Carolina Chickadees, and Tuffited Titmice eat my sunflower seeds all summer. About two weeks ago a few of these fellows showed up. I've searched my bird book and just can't seem to identify them. I thought they might be Bushtits, but those are not indigenous to my area. Candace and I did decide they arrived around the same time as Gustav. Could they be evacuees?

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

I don't know, but we have seen them around here. Their beaks and small size remind me of the hummingbird.
