thank you very much tconzemi!

according to XenoCanto, Yellow-vented is supposed to live in Indonesia...
yes, right, I've seen the Egret on the coast of Zanzibar island
Funny enough it is still called Yellow-vented Bulbul in the Tanzania Atlas Project, agree with Birdboybowley Common Bulbul of supspecies Dark-capped Bulbul

Unfortunately I don't remember... 9 years ago!

On the Lynx 'All birds of the world' guide, Cinnamon-breasted doesn't have the brown patch on the secondaries that Little Bee-eater seems to have. Is it an identification criteria?

If that can help, I'm certain that I've seen the bird on the top of the Ngorongoro Crater. It was at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge.
