"Blue" Birds

While we have now netted a station-record 6 Eastern Bluebirds in the 2009 spring, blue birds have continued to find our nets. On April 22nd and 23rd these beautiful adult males were banded. Can you pick out which is the Blue Grosbeak and which is the Indigo Bunting? Each are after-second-year birds--meaning that they were hatched in 2007 or earlier.
