Last night dumped a lot of White-crowned Sparrows in my Solvang backyard, and I just photographed a dark-lored one. Per [Lehman] this should either be *Z. l. oriantha* (likely) or *Z. l. leucophrys* (less likely). Another bird was either *Z. l. **pugetensis* or *Z. l. **nuttalli,* but I did not yet manage to photograph that one.
Advice on how to separate between those subspecies is welcome.
