Possible Townsend's x Hermit hybrid spotted in Berkeley

Hi all,

This little guy has been visiting a friend's backyard live oak in Berkeley, so my guess is he's living in the few blocks between Buena Ave. and Lincoln Street on the N-S and Sacramento and California on the E-W. Today was the first day I could grab any photos. Was hoping someone could confirm that I wasn't crazy, and that he isn't just a strangely marked Townsend's. Photos on eBird: https://ebird.org/checklist/S82397372.

Happy birding,

Eli
