2 HRs on left illustrate Anthony’s points.  In addition JW often appears dumpy compared to the more rangy HR, which has heavier bill in proportion (compare centre head with those on right).  Apart from call (HR generally silent except in early morning), both species are usually found in pairs – so look for the mate!
