What kind of nest do I have on my porch?

I think I might have a hummingbird’s nest on my front door, in a wreath. The nest is small and composed of string and other small, flexible sticks. The nest is completely covered however, so I’m not sure if it is a hummingbird or not. Are there any other birds that build small nests that are covered…and make a buzzing sound when disturbed.

Hummingbird do not use sticks..their nests look very cottony and are sometimes covered in lichens and they are not covered, they make open cup nests. Sounds more like a wren nest..they do make covered nest sometimes and they do make a buzzing noise.
