    I'd guess a cross. The bill speaks both speck and snow. The hint of white-front next to the bill. The feet...

    Either way, it would be going on my wall.

    Very possible it's a hybrid Blue / Speck .... I've mounted many Juvi blues , but that one there is surely not a normal juvie blue ...

    Here's a few juvie Blues I'm working on , not done but you can see they're different that yours . I'd say pretty good chance that bird is a snow speck cross ..

    Not a juvie blue for sure. looks almost like a blue x canada or maybe a spec. But with all the black on the neck and head as well as the brown back feathers that says canada cross to me

    That's what I thought it was at first but its more of a brown than a black, also the bill and feet made me think that is was speck because most Canadian hybrids I've seen have black bills and feet. I wish I knew where I could get it tested to see exactly what it is.
