There were a couple of reasons I preferred the Canary-winged/black-throated for this one: One is the black malar stripe and the other is the yellow on the outer tail feathers, both better for cw according to the Chilean book; however, the book only shows female, not immature. According to Ridgely and Tudor, there should be no yellow or buff on underside of the yellow-bridled which your bird has.

I saw plenty of cw in the lowland western end of TdF, but did not visit the Argentine part and cannot answer which is expected. It is certainly one of the two.
