  1. Another great set! I look at my Sibley bird guide to see the difference between the eastern and western bluebirds (I usually just use my location to figure out who’s who). You know the differences are obvious when looking at the guide, but if these birds overlapped I think there would be a lot of mistakes made in ID.
