One more Peru Bird (a seedeater)

Hi all,
Been looking through my photos of band-tailed seedeaters from Peru and this one looks a bit different? Smaller bill and much plainer breast; is it still just a band-tailed seedeater though?

RE: the ibis; yes only the Puna is on the eBird checklist, but I believe that's solely because of my checklist which currently identifies these birds as Puna ;) Black-faced does not flag as rare.
