Description

Looks a little like a female Dark-eyed Junco but with the wings and white discoloration of throat as seen on a White-throated Sparrow, could be a cross between the two.

    This is indeed a hybrid Dark-eyed Junco and White-throated Sparrow! The two are known to hybridize, but it is rare. Great find!

  • Martha Gerkey says:

    Just watching a group of juncos under a bird feeder by our windows facing south during an April snowstorm, there are at least 4 or 5 juncos and then there are two birds that look like a cross between a sparrow and a junco. They seem a little chubbier than the juncos and a little more skittish. I have tried to get a picture through the window but none are too clear. One is much more sparrow like while the second one has more grey mixed feathers. Location: Stillwater MN. date: 4.14.18
