[Tweeters] Leucistic Golden-Crowned Sparrow or GC/WC hybrid?

A couple of times recently I've seen a sparrow in my yard that has a broad
medial head strip like a Golden-Crowned Sparrow, but the strip is
more-or-less white. Lines near the eye look like a GC, as far as I've been
able to notice.

Are Golden-Crowned/White-Crowned hybrids likely, and would they look like
this, or is it probably a leucistic GC?

Sorry, no photo yet...
