Dark-eyed Junco Subspecies? Northern Ontario

Recommended Posts

Hi.  Can anyone tell me what subspecies of junco this is?  It looks like a pink-sided but they're not supposed to be in my region?  (Just east of Sudbury Ontario)  I know slate is here but unsure what else.  Is it an immature or female slate?  It was with two white-crowned sparrow adults.    Thank you.

Slate-colored is by far the most likely where you are, and female or immature (or both?) Slate-colored can be pretty brownish, so I'm not seeing anything that would lead me to call it anything else.  Pink-sided has much pinker sides and normally a paler head with more solidly dark lores.
