Western Bluebird

Walked around Lake Chabot today and came across this Western Bluebird. Extremely colorful in person.
Blue jay? This looks a lot like our eastern bluebird.. only brighter.. I know the robin is different in different countries.. beautiful shot

@cheribug Thanks for catching that...I looked it up twice in the Merlin Bird ID App and then wrote in down incorrectly. It is a Western Bluebird. It looks a lot like the Eastern one too as you mention. Merlin says the Males are brighter in Royal Blue than females. Merlin also says "Range barely overlaps Eastern Bluebird, but note orange on back of males and grayer belly on sides of neck on females."

@mikegifford I have two pairs of Eastern bluebirds nesting around my house. The western has more orange than the eastern.. still a beautiful bird no matter what..
