These Yellow-bellied Greenbuls are common (and entertaining) around the swimming pool at Punda.

Nice pic CR, the only ones I have ever seen came into our camp and looked around on the southern bank of the Cunene River!

@Charming1:
Looks more like a Yellow-bellied Greenbul but you're not saying where or when you saw the bird or any other information that might be used to assist in the identification. Please have a look at this thread.

Hi Charming1,
It's a Yellow-bellied Greenbul. The distinct white above the eye is a very good field character. The bill seems heavy. It's photographed in some sort of berry tree? Fruit form part of their diet.
DCYW is a very good guess but the bill will be shorter / smaller, and the lores will have yellow. They eat insects and you'll see them most often along water.
