Kenya: Weaver Birds-NeedID

I photographed these weaver birds in Kenya in August, 2013.
The first three photos are from the front entrance to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. These birds had a colony at the gate.

The second set of two photos were taken at a roadside rest near the equator.
I know there are so many of these yellow weaver birds.
Could the first three be Speke's Weavers??

ID help would be appreciated.

I would say all Speke's but wait for other opinions from those that know better.

Can't see the birds for the trees!

Definitely Speke's, yes.
Sad that Amazonia is in fire ? You can take action : 91% of deforestation is for animal farming. Go vegan today. That's the best you can do for the lung of the Earth !
