Me again!!

Well these are general as opposed to raptors or LBjs, but I still need confirmations please!

Possibly a female collared sunbird?

Hello all
So I thought this is a white-bellied sunbird. But maybe I'm wrong because the beak looks like it isnt long enough and the colours dont look right according to my Sasol bird app. I took the photographs while waiting for 14h00 at Skukuza, just in front of the offices where it was sucking stuff out of the flowers.

Looks like a female collared sunbird to me. Know they hang about at the aloes near the offices.

:thumbs_up: For Collared Sunbird but its a male the female doesn't have green on the throat and upper chest and the Blueish purple breast bandband is also just for the male.
