So, what would y'all make of a sparrow mixed with a group of White- throated Sparrows, same basic size, build, gestalt, but with a dark gray head reminiscent of a junco or towhee? The bird's wingbars were also fainter than a typical white-throat's. I thought White-throat X Junco hybrid, but googling for images of these shows something not very similar to this bird. Light was backlit, but I did not pick out any white tail feathers.
