1. Option A can be eliminated as it compares 'species' with a 'male' and 'female' warbler
2. Similarly, option B can be eliminated as it compares 'species' with 'gender'
3. Option C is incorrect as 'those' refers to the 'male and female blue-winged warbler species', therefore it would read:
Unlike male and female blue-winged warblers in most warbler species, the male and female blue-winged warblers are very difficult to distinguish
This is incorrect as blue-winged warblers are a subset of the warbler species
4. D can be eliminated due to the same reasons as A
5. E is correct as it compares the 'blue-winged warblers' correctly with the warbler species

A ,B,D are comparing species and warbler .
C: Use of those is incorrect .

Option E though wordy is correct as it compares Blue-winged warblers with most species of warbler
