Sunbirds for ID

Please help with ID of these two sets of Sunbirds. Both sent to me by a resident of Le Domaine here in Hillcrest, Durban.

Click on the picture and add your comments below the enlarged Photo.

The First set:

The Second set:

The first 2 pictures in this sequence were taken on 4th April and the last one on the 19th April. Looking up at what? Scouring above could yield no clues – maybe you have an idea?

    My guess is that the Sunbird seen in Le Domaine is a Female Malachite Sunbird

  2. Hi Bob, does your comment relate to the first or second set of pictures?

    I would go for Malachite sunbird in eclipse plumage. There is a hint of green on the back, yellow streakiing below and the bill seems less decurved than both amethyst and grtr dbl collared which can also be found in the area.
