Please help Confirm Lifer Rofous-Winged Sparrow

Recommended Posts

I was told when in Patagonia that this would be a very difficult bird to find...and was told when I showed Pics to a few down there that it was a Rofous-crowned, Not a Rufous -Winged. However, in my own research I saw that in the "Birds of Southwestern Arizona" Guide by Richard Cachor Taylor, it clearly states that the Rofous-winged has a "Double black whiskers and a rofous shoulder patch. Pretty sure I got this one but want to check with you experts. Thanks so much!!!!!

Rufous-winged Sparrow, they are not too tough to see in winter, I have seen them in the parking lot of Patagonia - Sonoita Creek Preserve in winter, they are a little tougher to see in summer but still not too hard to see.
