ODD JUNCO

A friend of mine just took this picture of a Junco in her garden in Phoenix, Oregon.  Whassup?  Any ideas?  Seems way too late for any Junco to have any version of speckled juvenile plumage.JUNCODDA hybrid?  If so, what’s the mix?  This is clearly a male bird with that very black hood.

Could this be a slightly melanistic bird?
