Mystery Bird in Phoenix, Arizona

Hiking in Golden Canyon outside Phoenix, AZ this morning. Found this bird foraging above the water. I am thinking some kind of wren but would love to get a second opinion.

Partial Albino Bird? Phoenix, AZ

Went to the riparian preserve a couple of weeks ago and saw this bird. Haven't been able to figure out what it is, so I'm thinking it may be a parital albino form of another bird? Any thoughts?
