A tree pipit (which I have seen on Attu) apparently nests on the ground, but sings from low branches of a tree!

Yes Joe, pipit it is! Next time they are out at Lagerman Res I'm going to give them a piece of my mind
& tell them to get in a tree!

Keep in mind that this is the NY Times crossword, not the Sibley crossword. :-) Expect some imperfections when it comes to avian clues.
I know the answer and do typically see this bird on the ground. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever seen it off the ground when not in flight. I've seen it nesting on the ground in the Colorado tundra.

Raises an interesting question about the meaning of "ground-dwelling". It occurred to me after suggesting "junco" that robins frequently feed on the ground and in that sense might be considered "ground-dwelling." When I was thinking of possible answers, I was thinking in terms of ground-nesters, but "dwelling" could have different meanings.
