For the past few days, a Cassiar Junco (ssp. cismontanus) has joined the flock of juncos that frequents our Magnolia yard. Though we usually see a Slate-colored Junco (ssp. hyemalis) or two in the winter, this is the first time a Cassiar Junco has shown up.

What is the taxonomic status of this form now? Is it considered a valid subspecies or an intergrade between Oregon and Slate-colored Junco?
