Got a photo of this Junco in the backyard yesterday evening. I'm thinking Dark-eyed Oregon. Note the lack of mask on this one and that there is a mask visible on the first photo. Making it a pinksided yellow eyed. Agree or disagree?
To clear things up a bit, there are 2 species of Junco: Dark-eyed and Yellow-eyed. All of the other different names (Oregon, Pink-sided, etc.) are just races of the Dark-sided species. Therefore, a "pink-sided Yellow-eyed" doesn't exist, but an "Oregon Dark-eyed" does. You last bird is indeed an Oregon race.

TheBillyPilgram thanks. We must have been typing at the same time. My post above yours is me figuring out what you are saying. Thanks!
No problem. Their classification is sort of confusing an probably not an accurate reflection of their evolutionary relationship (some people have hypothesized that the gray-headed race of Dark-eyed is probably closer related to the Yellow-eyed, based on song type; others think the whole complex should be considered one species!)
