Possible Hybrid?

Image courtesy of Loren Hansen:

#2621 LOREN: This is a group shot that I have numbered and labeled.I am wondering about Number 6,as it appears different from the other blacks. Could it be a hybrid ? (Maybe a cross between Black and Gray-crowned ?)

KEN: To me, Number 6 appears to be a Black Rosy-Finch. It is black rather than dark brown, has a distinct whitish hind-crown, and has considerable pink on undersides. White wing coverts point to a first year bird, maybe a male in view of amount of rosy color.
