Hello everyone, since people helped me before with some 'easy' birds I dare to ask for another ID. Could anyone please help me identifying these sunbirds? They are such beautiful, colourful birds but I am struggling to find their correct names.
The first one near Cape Point (a female?) and the last one in Tsitsikamma NP. This one also had a little blue near the tail.

Sorry that the pictures aren't very clear, you have to be quick to photograph them.

Thank you so much!

Hi Hasco
The last bird is a Lesser Doublecollared Sunbird. I can't help you with the first one.

I agree with gf, but the first one also looks like a LDC sunbird.
