how can I tell if my son is color blind?

My son is 2 1/2 and pretty good with his colors. He knows them all. He always confuses red and green, however. I will ask him if elmo is the same color as big bird, he says no. I ask if elmo is the same color as oscar the grouch- he says yes. I point to something red and then green and ask what color they are and he will either say both are green or both are red. He does not have any confusion with other colors. Is there any way I can tell if he is color blind when he is this young? Or am I maybe just freaking out for no reason??
