I think the dark-eyed has many different morphs/colorations...one must be this pink-sided junco...I'd definitely put it in your title...see if we can get Liam's input...he's a genius when it comes to birds!! I have a couple dark-eyed spottings, but both don't seem to have pink...but that doesn't mean much!! ;-)

It looks like it may be the same bird to me

Eva, when I google Pink-sided Junco, it took me to Dark-eyed Junco...I think it's just a color-morph...doesn't lessen the cuteness!!! ;-)

Actually it's a dark-eyed Junco...we have them all over Colorado...they're adorable!!! Great spotting!

From what I can tell this may be a pink-sided junco.
