I know it's a Towhee, but how do we rule out Black-headed Grosbeak? too rufous?

Well if you know it's a towhee, how did you rule out BHGR?

First off, notice the shape, structure and behavior of the bird. That should be enough right there, but there is no also no rufous in the collar and the bird lacks any white patches in the base of the primaries and coverts. Also, look at that full dark hood.
