South African Birds (1 Viewer)

Hi
What an amazing resource this forum is - I should have found it earlier.
As a newbie here I wonder if anybody can help me identify these birds I photographed in Southern Africa in Aug/Sep 2018.
The first image was taken at Etosha NP Namibia (close to a waterhole), the second and third were taken in near Lake Nakuru in Kenya.
My apologies for the quality of the last image.
Thanks for the help.
Peter

Welcome to BirdForum. The third picture looks like a Collared Palm-thrush, although I'm not sure that occurs at Lake Nakuru. Was it definitely taken there?

Agree on 1. 2) Olive thrush (unsure if this has been split further) 3) Collared palm-thrush but out of range at Nakuru?

Thank you all.
I have rechecked and Daniel you are correct about the Collared Palm Thrush distribution I saw it was a few miles south of Victoria Falls. I thought I had maintained the locations carefully but had made an error - my apologies.
Thanks again.
