I have an oddly colored junco at my bird feeder. It has white (a little dirty) cheek patches, reminiscent of a chickadee, but a dark spot (not symmetrical) around the eye. It is not any of the “standard” races I can find anywhere. I have seen a lot of strange variation (often whites) on house sparrows, but do not know if this kind of color variation is well-known for other species. Can anyone provide any insight?
