Jerry,

American Tree Sparrows molt out of  juvenile plumage long before they
migrate south. Your bird looks like an  immature, or winter adult,
Chipping Sparrow.

Ok, I'm thinking juvenile American  Tree Sparrow - streaked head and
chest, slight buffy coloration on upper  coloration, oversized,
bicolored bill.
Still?  Confirmation  needed.  Never see these things around here, so
its a first (for  me).
