Another Sunbird, Tanzania

Wondering if this a Beautiful Sunbird - both the same individual and in the grounds of Simba Farm Lodge, West Kilimanjaro.

I've been struggling with a juvenile sunbird ID recently myself. To me this looks good for Beautiful, with the very short tail and lack of mottling on the chest. I expected to see a narrow white band on the end of the tail, but I'm not sure if that is always present.

Thanks a lot for your help - it seems to be difficult to to get much of a response where Sunbirds are concerned.
Much appreciated.
