Very nice! Trying to distinguish between Western and Eastern in Texas is a horrible task. There song is completely different, but the facial markings are only slightly different to help you distinguish. Sometimes we can make the difference known based on time of year. During the winter Westerns are more heavy, in the spring and summer Eastern is the more common. Either way, lovely spot :-)
