Different species / Ethiopia 3

Last batch please, since we are at it

The wagtail, I believe Grey?

Not sure we can ID the Sunbird through this photo...

Many thanks!

I thing the wagtail is Yellow (flava),
the pipit young/female Red-throated Pipit

where did you see the Sunbird?

Thanks for your help, David.

All photos were taken at Sululta plains, just outside Addis.

I may have seen the sunbird in Addis, now that you ask. Although I think all photos were taken at Sululta.

Birds I saw here were Tacazze, Scarlet-chested and Variable Sunbirds, from your photo I think only Variable fits.

No. 2 is also a Yellow wagtail Jose, but it can't be identified to subspecies level.
