I did some research on the Merriams just recently (because I have a Rio from the northern TX Panhandle that sure has white looking tips in is tail feathers), and what I came up w/ is the bronze-looking band that runs through the black just below the tips (as in your top picture). I could find no proof that this distinguished a Merriams from a lightly-tipped Rio, but I would sure say the Toms in your photos and videos are Merriams. I recently lived in Clayton, and killed a Tom less than 20 miles from town, and he was a Rio. So, it looks as if the area around Clayton has both Rios and Merriams. But yours, Jeremy, definitely look to be Merriams to me.
