On Feb 07, 2020 - we were at the San Pedro River National Riparian Conservation Area.  We parked at the San Pedro House located off AZ-SR90 east of Sierra Vista, AZ.

We had walked the trail along the San Pedro River going south and then around the pond then on trail back to the parking lot.  We spotted the bird below in Cottonwood.  Using my camera to shoot long range (I did not have my zoom lens installed) I tried to snap as many pictures as I could.  Below is enlargements of what we saw.  At first we thought it was the Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet but the more we looked at resources I leaned to the Rufous-winged Sparrow, then more looking and found it also could be the  Botteri's Sparrow.  I'm not sure my photos provide enough information but I thought I'd give it try here to see if anyone might know what we saw for sure.  Thanks for all your help.
