Flycatcher mix up

Here are two birds often mixed up.

1st is a Pale Blue Flycatcher.....this bird prefers to perch inside the shades of the forest and I have not seen it on an open exposed branch.......

2nd is Verditer Flycatcher which is a much more commonly seen bird as it is often seen perched in the open.

Both birds are widely distributed in SEA and South Asia.
They dont belong to the same genus. Pale Blue being a cyornis and Verditer part of the much smaller group of Eumyias..

Both pix from Bhutan
