The photo is not the best but these little birds are very difficult to spot and photograph way up in the canopy. They are only found in the Ongoye Forest in KZN.

One of my favourite birds! AMAZING how a species can only be found in one small forest. I believe there is a similar small forest in Zambia where you also find them.
