Difficult, but I think I see some white on flanks in the picture with wings spread, so will take a stab at female Purple-rumped Sunbird. I think not female Purple because tail is not black.... Looks kinda young and scruffy...

Hoping for confirmation (or correction)

It's a bulbul, definitely not a sunbird (the pictures both show the same bird). Yellow-browed?? Not the easiest photos to id from!!
