mountain or western?

Okay. I'm almost positive these two were Mountain bluebirds...and the pictures I ended up with were terrible, but here's the deal. There was a male and a female, and they were both flying low to the ground from fence perch to fence perch at approximately 5,400 ft. above sea level in low shrubland/prairie habitat. Since it's still "winter" here, I'm assuming they were mountain bluebirds...and there was absolutely no rust coloration on either bird to indicate the western species. I thought I'd post the pictures, just in case the bird ID geniuses want to ring in! Also, no way they were any other blue looking bird for the area--definitely one or the other bluebird! Taken yesterday in Fort Collins, CO. :D also, either would be a lifer.
