Dark eyed Junco or White throated sparrow  

 Doreen Ojala

I have been told that the White Throated Sparrow is a migrant for my area, here in Espanola, so I am not sure it could be one.  It has also been suggested that it might be a Dark eyed Junco...any thoughts?

The thin-looking bill and lighting makes this a bit tricky, but it looks to be a juvenile Lincoln's, Swamp, or Song Sparrow. Hard to tell for sure from the photo unfortunately, but thanks for sharing!
