You can distinguish between the two types by the cheek patches and the tails. A grey green will have grey, silver or blue cheek patches and a black tail. An olive will have violet cheek patches and a dark blue tail

The two pictures of Sweetie look very different shades so it would be difficult to tell her correct shade of green from these pictures
Nice explanation.

Bubbly has very obvious grey cheek patches but it is very difficult to tell the color of top cheek patches of Sweetie.

Sweetie has two colors in cheek patches. Top ones are grayish blue or grayish violet (not as violet as normal variety usually have). And the lower are brown same as wing colors.
