I saw these birds along the river at the Blue Post Hotel, Thika March 2017. Possibly Canaries or Citril? IMG_9938.jpg IMG_9958.jpg

I learned on this forum a short while ago that my finch book is badly out of date. But as far as I can tell this should be African citril - Crithagra citrinelloides

Thanks for your replies. I agree with Citril but unsure as to specific species. Even the latest edition of Stevenson and Fanshaw is not very helpful as my bird looks more like Western Citril being not as heavily streaked underneath as African.
