509/ZZ176.) Meve´s Starling (Lamprotornis mevesii) / Mevesglanzstar

 

Mana Pools, 18/10. All over the place.

 

large.BY202.JPG.945ec825410b158c5b25f923

 

It really wouldn´t have been very difficult to get a Greater Blue-Eared (very common in Kafue) but I waited for a good shot - which never came to pass.

 

-/ZZ177.) Violet-Backed Starling (Cinnyricinclus leucogaster) / Amethystglanzstar

 

Southern Kafue, 9/10. A female.

513/ZZ183.) Collared Sunbird (Hedydipna collaris) / Waldnektarvogel

 

Konkamoya Lodge, 8/10. Very similar to Variable but breast band is narrower and bill not as curved.

large.BY220.JPG.6391d58823522001c6ac4ebc

 

-/ZZ190.) Village Weaver (Ploceus cucullatus) / Dorfweber

 

Pioneer Camp, 17/10. Very similar but (in this area) the entire head is black, no yellow crown like the Masked.

large.BY222.JPG.b307123f7732551e0785045a

 

I´m not quite sure about this one - Quelea or non-breeding Village Indigobird? (Same location, same date). The bill does not look red enough to me.

520/ZZ191.) White-Winged Widowbird (Euplectes albonotatus) / Spiegelweber

 

Kanga Camp, 23/10. All these non-breeding WidowWhydahthings are an ID nightmare but these (the birds with the yellow hues, note the two ones on the right in the second picture) look distinctive enough.

521/ZZ192.) Long-Tailed Paradise Whydah (Vidua paradisaea) / Schmalschwanzwitwe

 

Kanga, 23/10. The black and white head pattern is distinctive, and I think the breast colour rules out Broad-Tailed Paradise Whydah and the Indigobirds, Pin-Tailed Whydah would not have a black bill.

522/ZZ193.) Purple Indigobird (Vidua purpurascens) / Purpurwitwe

 

Dhumukwa Camp, Mana Pools, 17/10. I remember that´s what Doug thought it is, and it seems like a good fit.
