This bird was photographed 11Aug2009 at Gilbert Water Ranch, Gilbert, Az. There was no photo of the front so I cannot tell if the breast is dingy. However the upper scapulars are edged bright rufous so I think Western. Is the feathers going down the legs a diagnostic feature? What can be said about the rufous on the back next to the neck? Does the bill tell the whole story?
