Arizona Towhee?

Recommended Posts

Took this picture at Fort Bowie National Historic Site in AZ on May 3.  Head looks like maybe a Green-tailed Towhee... conspicuous reddish crown, white supraloral spot, moustachial stripe, white throat.   However, the body looks more like a Canyon Towhee... doesn't show olive-green on its upperparts and maybe a wash of rust on it lower belly.   The bird was back lit, so the poor lighting might be changing its look. 

Thanks in advance!
