A few that come to mind:

Carolina Wren  eats spiders and insects on and near the ground.  My personal favorite because it daily cleans my porch of spiders!

Yellow-Billed Cuckoo  eats the green tent worm

Brown Thrasher   forages on the ground for insects

Brown Creeper  investigates tree bark looking for insects

Eastern (formerly Rufous) Towhee  scratches in leaf litter like a chicken looking for insects,nuts and seeds

Owls and Hawks of course eat rodents.
