We’ve got a number of juncos with a white dot on the top of their heads here in Smithers, BC. I’ve yet to find another in guides or on the www?

Bill Williams says:

I just saw one at a birdfeeder in Kingston, Washington, on the west side of Puget Sound a little north of Seattle. First one I’ve seen in the 11 years we’ve lived here. It was the white spot on the crown of its head that caught my attention.
