Observation details

*Scarce winter visitor. Two birds generally staying together. One slightly paler than the other, and standing out more among Canadas. Both slightly smaller, more compact, smaller billed, squarer headed; more uniform color than Canadas with paler back, darker wash to breast; more tricolored pattern to scapulars; longer wingtip projection. Two other birds associating with these may also have been Cackling, but somewhat intermediate; possibly hybrids?
