Looks like a Jameson's firefinch to me. The red-billed does not have such a dark eye :hmz:

Anne-marie, what reference are you using to say that Jameson's Firefinch doesn't really occur in Kruger?

Have a look at the latest SABAP2 distribution map for the species at this link...

Hi Everyone,
At Ngwenya Lodge just outside KNP in first week of July, on the verandah of unit 58, we saw a Jamieson's Firefinch eating seed off a seedtray, so we concur that they are in and around KNP.
What a delight!
