This junco visits feeder only periodically, over the whole winter season; seems healthy, but defers to other juncos at feeders. The photo isn’t very good, but the white markings are symmetrical if a little erratic. Besides the white around the eyes is an irregular streak of white across the upper breast. The pattern hasn’t changed all winter.

    Oh! I just now discovered a similar one at my feeder.
    I’m in Manhattan, KS and I have a dark-eyed junco with splotches of white around her eyes, beak, and breasts, so much so that she looks juvenile but it’s too late in the season for that (january). She too defers to the other birds,

    Thought it was interesting so I went searching to see if others had encountered a similar look in juncos.
