Vireo and Sparrow ID, Arizona, USA (1 Viewer)

The below photographs were taken today at Madera Canyon in south central Arizona, USA.

The first photograph is the only shot I got and is not much to work with. Based on location I believe this is either a Bell's Vireo or a Gray Vireo. Can anyone help.

For the second photograph I thought it was a Chipping Sparrow when I took it. Looking at it later I was not satisfied with the ID and looked at it being a Rufous-crowned Sparrow. Not completely satisfied with either ID. Need resolution.

Possibly a Plumbeous Vireo for the first and it looks like a Chipping Sparrow for the second
