I'd like a clear shot from behind - but Subalpine looks favourite

I assume both photos show the same bird - I agree that the 2nd photo shows Subalpine. If its the same bird in the 1st photo, it looks rather dull below for a Subalpine but it could be a trick of the photo.

Hi. Not sure it is the same bird. It was a family.
Subalpine was also my favorite, but the birds looked tiny.

Thanks, Subalpines are pretty lttle - I was watching 3 birds at dusk - quite common migrants here at this time. I can't decide on the 1st photo - but Subalpines do show bright, light and crisp underparts - like your 2nd photo shows.
