Ryukyu Minivet ? Or Ashy Minivet - Okinawa, Japan Area (1 Viewer)

In working on adding certain tags to gallery entries, I had run across these two uploads from member arjacee approximately 10 years ago. At the time, they were unsure if these were specimens of the Ryukyu Minivet or the Ashy Minivet. I can't be certain because of the lack of information included back then, but my thoughts are they were taken in the Okinawa, Japan area.

It was suggested to them, back then, to ask here for help in confirming the ID, but it doesn't seem they did so. At least, not that I've found yet.

My ID skills are not up to the level of being able to determine which they are. So, I'd like to ask if anyone here might be willing, and able, to offer an opinion about them. I will add the appropriate tags when I can be sure about the ID.

Thanks!
