Junco X White-throated Sparrow Hybrid?

I saw this bird during day 1 of this week's Feederwatch counting. Could it be a dark-eyed junco/White-throated sparrow hybrid? He had a white throat, and a brown back and wings. Also submitted to eBird.

I think it’s a Dark-eyed Junco that is partially leucistic.

Thank you! That is definitely also a possibility. I have seen some odd placement of white feathers on partially leucistic birds before. I saw a partially leucistic robin this week as well, and maybe I’ll post a photo of that bird too!
