[Tweeters] Junco question

Just recently we have been seeing a couple of notably different Juncos at our feeders. We always have Slate and Oregon varieties out here in Issaquah, but over the last couple of months, there are two (that we've been able to count at once) that would appear​ to my eye to be Pink-sided, which WOS seems to indicate would be fairly out of range here. These are some shots of one of our pretty little guests, shot through our shamefully dirty windows, so apologies for lack of contrast; could the eyes and minds here please give me a confirmation or refutation on the ID? The gray (vs black) head and the reddish/orangish more than "pink" sides are what lead me to the Pink-sided ID so far.

And, just for helping out, a gander at the other well-dressed and individual bird that we've been graced with in the same time period; a somewhat piebald Oregon morph

Thanks, All!
