I say borealis. The malar should "drip" into the belly band in an abieticola. The belly band would be much bigger as well, being pinched in the middle, almost resembling a Roughie when perched.

You can still report an abieticola on eBird though. eBird is weird. 😋

Agreed. You can also report a "Krider's" RTHA on eBird and it is not classified as a distinct subspecies.

B. j. “kriderii” does not have a breeding range distinct from those of other subspecies, meaning it cannot, by definition, be a valid subspecies; instead, its breeding range occupies the sw. portion of that of B. j. borealis, and it winters chiefly in the Great Plains (Dickerman 1989a).
