I think the lighting is decieving in this image; it looks like a brightish female "Oregon" Dark-eyed Junco. All the field marks are there for this subspecies, and Pink-sided would have a stark contrast in a black face mask to the head, as well as much more intense and a larger patch of peachy-pink on the flanks. Also there would be definition to the greater coverts and wing linings. Grey-headed is completely different and is very light grey overall with grey on the wings, black face mask, shield-like rufous mantle, and NO brownish colour on the flanks.
