Dark Eyed Junco Subspecies

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

This junco at my feeder is giving me a hard time; it reminds me of the Cismontanus S.s.p but it doesn't seem to have a well enough defined hood for that; However the coloration also seems a bit off for Slate colored (Expected S.s.p in Michigan). Perhaps a mix between the two or just an oddly plumaged slate colored junco? 

 Thanks in advance for any suggestions, probably just something ordinary, just curious if anyone else had any thoughts

It looks like an everyday slate colored Dark-eyed Junco, to me.

My exact words.  It looks like the Slates in my back yard, only mine don't have cold feet.
