"desert habitat"

This does nothing to separate the species as both are found together in many parts of Arizona. Both also have long bills.

The plain, more mutes tones the the plumage and less contrast are the key here. Rock Wrens also have a pale supercilium, which this bird does.

Obviously not useful to separate against Canyon Wren or Cactus, but Bewick's is generally more a bird of riparian or suburban areas than strictly desert.
