Hey guys,
I am going to make a topic, were you could talk about the Junco Subspecies, and post pictures if you like. I also would like for people to talk about the ranges of the subspecies. There was a Definate Pink sided junco at Eagle creek park today *no pictures* but it is going to be reported. I saw one that I got confirmed by an Ornithologist......... He did say "we only get them every couple of years and are rare but we do get them."

this is a 1st winter female Pink Sided Junco:

And here is a male 1st Winter Slate colored for comparison:

Also if any of you have data on Junco subspecies in the east please share them in this Thread.

Thanks,
Shoveler26

That would be a Pink Sided female notice the brownish on the head, like in my picture. Nice shot! Today I might go back to the spot were they reported a Male Pink Sided junco at Eagle creek park, Indiana.

This looks like a Cassiar, Cassiar juncos winter in the east, but are most commonly found mixed in with Oregon races in the west

First off, I'm pretty sure that totah sam's is a female Oregan, and I think that DK's is a female Slate-colored.

I've got a few sub-species I'll post later. . .

ABA list: 425 Latest- Black-chinned Sparrow, Mountain Quail
Yearlist: 326 Latest- Black-chinned Sparrow
Yard List- 100!! latest: Olive-sided Flycatcher

I think you may be right, the Pinkish Flanks are leading me towards "Cassiar" but I agree..... maybe a first winter female Slate colored
