I had recently posted a Flickr link to a couple of (not so great) photos of what I thought might be a Slate-colored Dark-eyed Junco (SCJU). The past couple of days what appeared to be the same bird showed up again and I was able to get a few more, somewhat better pictures. I have again posted them in my Flickr account. I am always to open to hearing opinions but my own, after more research, is that this is most likely a Slate-colored, as the only warm/brownish tones on it are a light wash on the back and hood, such as might be found on a female. Here is the link—these 4 recent as well as the two I originally posted can be found in the Album labeled as Dark-Eyed Junco - Slate-colored.


It’s a handsome bird, and I am hoping I will see it again this week!
