Tree sparrow

Bitterly cold after the snow on Christmas.
Keeping the feeders full for all the birds and a little corn on the ground for various mammals that wander through.

Spizelloides arborea
Misleadingly named by European settlers reminded of Eurasian Tree Sparrows back home, American Tree Sparrows are ground birds. They forage on the ground, nest on the ground, and breed primarily in scrubby areas at or above the treeline.
