This discussion on BirdFellow from 2011, about a bird that was accepted by ORBC as a 3rd state record for McKay’s Bunting, includes a photo of a female McKay’s Bunting, and notes about the identification: http://www.birdfellow.com/journal/2011/11/29/mystery_bunting_possible_mckay_s

Mike Patterson posted this link earlier to a photo on the Audubon website that looks like a first winter female McKay’s Bunting (caption says photo is by Paul Bannick, but does not list age and sex of bird): https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/mckays-bunting
