Is this truly a Winter Wren ( Troglodytes hiemalis) or a Pacific Wren ( Troglodytes pacificus)?

I grew up with Winter Wrens around the Seattle area, but they turned in to Pacifics in the split of 2010. I have read of at least one confirmed sighting of Troglodytes hiemalis in the Pacific Northwest, identified by song, recently.

It was doing its full on song today, and was there earlier in the week too, and there was one there a couple months ago. For any Phinney/Ballard folks, this little patch is always a little birdy - today, scrub jays, butterbutts, siskins along with usual suspects...
