Hi All!  I was wondering if y'all could help me to identify the bird in these two pictures.  I took the photographs at Enchanted Rock State Park (near Fredericksburg, TX) in early July.  I believe the first picture is of a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (0785), but I am not sure if the other one (0789) is as well. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty certain it's still a juvenile Black-throated Sparrow, the grass is simply covering the eyeline. The gray plumage overall and lack of a strong wing pattern rules out a lot, and we can eliminate Rufous-crowned because of the streaking on the sides of the breast.
