reddish migrant, possibly M. m. merrilli

Observation details

including one resident heermanni still in juvenal plumage (photos), well-seen along southern fenceline; also, one adult with very reddish tinges to malars and ventral streaking -- the extensive reddish suggests northwestern M. m. merrilli (recorded south to San Diego Co.), but one would want to rule out scarce local migrant M. m. montana, which has a reddish tinge to ventral streaking (photos)
