Gray Bird in Tree

Anyone know what this bird is? See how beautifully camouflaged it is against the pine bark. It was poking about the tree trunk hopping and making a peeping sound. A few minutes later it flew up into the tree leaves - see the last photo.

The first two photos are Brown-headed Nuthatches.

The last picture is a different bird, though, a Carolina Chickadee.

Thanks! I thought all three were the same bird - it had left the trunk when I took the third picture... but you're right, it does look like the third picture is different.
