I am not an expert on the "Plain" Titmouse group by any means, but I am a long time eBird user and I just want to clarify that designating a bird in an eBird checklist as "Oak/Juniper Titmouse (Plain Titmouse)" is not declaring that the bird you are reporting is a hybrid. It is only stating that the bird is in the "Plain" Titmouse group and the observer is not certain as to where in the group it belongs. As far as I can see, there is currently no designation in eBird for "Oak Titmouse x Juniper Titmouse (hybrid)".
