    Default Mountain bluebird?

    Photographed 3 weeks ago along the Madison River in Yellowstone. Looks like the gray mountain bluebird illustrated in the Sibley guide to me but I'm far from certain......

    That is a Mountain Bluebird for sure. "Gray" is possible, but also possibly just simply a female or young one just about to lose the "scaling" on the belly feathers.

    Thanks, Daniel. What would be the clues that would rule out/in the 'Gray'?
