eastern are rusty tail edges. merriam is white, Rio buff, Osceola look kinda like skinny long legged Eastern but more black on the wings, Gould's look like a Rio i think.

Heres a website that should have the info youre looking for:

The different species are there on the left side of the screen. Hope it helps!

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
