Brewer's or Clay-colored

This looks more like Clay-colored than Brewer's to me but Brewer's is a lot more likely for Pima co, Arizona

It hasn't got the pale coronal stripe you'd expect to see on a Clay-colored. Can't see why it isn't s Brewer's.

To my eye it looks “more” Clay-coloured Sparrow than Brewers....

Appearing to show a grey nape, distinct lateral throat-stripe and a stronger moustache stripe, overall a more contrasty bird compared to Brewer’s?

Cheers

Agree with Clay-colored.
