Indigo Bunting or Blue Grosbeak?

Recommended Posts

I was going through old pictures and these two threw me for a loop. I initially identified them as INBUs, but could either or both be grosbeaks? This is from central KY last summer.

This is a Blue Grosbeak. Note the wing color and bill shape. The bill of the bird in @zbird’s photos is thicker than an Indigo Bunting. 

The first photo, at a glance did look like a Blue Grosbeak to me also, if that makes you feel any better.
