Subject: [birders] Re: Unusual coloration in a junco
The cismontanus pictures give me a very strong sense of recognition; the
Oregon pictures much less so because the bird I saw did not have any color
on it other than gray and white. No rufus, chestnut, etc.

i’m debating whether this is a strong enough sighting to report. I don’t
have any photos. On the other hand, there have been sightings of both
cismontanus and Oregon juncos in the general area southern Michigan during
the last 30 days. I did have ample opportunity to see and study the bird
and my visual memory of it is quite clear.
