Lazuli Bunting or Blue Grosbeak?

Recommended Posts

May 8 2023 California. Lazuli Bunting is common and there were several present in the area (as well as a flock of Black-headed Grosbeaks). Blue Grosbeak is also possible at this date and location but pretty uncommon.

Thoughts on this bird? Just a Bunting? Maybe a Blue Grosbeak? Or Passerina sp?

That is a Lazuli Bunting female, a blue grosbeak would have a noticeably more thicker bill while the Lazuli Bunting females have a darker back and a bit of a blue wash that comes with it. 

Nice new profile pic!
