Kenya Sunbirds Dec 2020

Recommended Posts

These were photographed in Nairobi, Kenya in December 2020. Photos 1, 2 and 3 are the same bird.  Photos 4 and 5 were of another bird which was in the same tree - possibly a female of the first species.  Any help appreciated.

Believe these are all Bronzed Sunbird.

Bronze Sunbirds, there is no d at the end. The female is a Bronze Sunbird, and the male very likely is the same species, but they are all pretty dark in the photos and sunbirds can be difficult to ID depending on the lighting. I think the other species they are confused with is Tacazze Sunbird, which have purple iridescence to their feathers.
