I think that your first bird is another bokmakierie.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that this may be a juvenile bokmakierie? Seen at WCNP on 7 September 2009.

Such nice photo's! We used to have a few of them in our garden when I was small and I remember sitting and watching them for ages... They are such beautiful birds!

Did You Know? :hmz:
The Bokmakierie is a near-endemic bird. Near-endemic are birds who are confined to Southern Africa, but which extends their ranges marginally into countries to the north, such as Zambia and Angola.
