in every pic, the Maroon Bellied is on the right. Maroon bellied does look different to a GCC. Some people can't tell the difference, but if you got one you can tell difference easily

The maroon bellied has a greenish head then? I think I can tell them apart now. I couldn't until I looked at all of those pictures after you said which bird it was. Thanks!

That is correct, Nanay. Maroon Bellied also stockier build, very slightly small beak, eyes are slightly different to a GCC. If looking at a Maroon Bellied head on they got this really cute distinct look.

I love both my GCCs to bits but the Maroon Bellied does exceed and out smart, out cute, and many other outs the GCC. In the future I would definitely get another Maroon Bellied love them!
