A few more bird IDs requested

Jump to last reply

I have now put up my galleries from northwestern rwanda and mgahinga gorilla national park at www.pbase.com/cwillis. There are a few more bird pictures that I can't identify, so to those of you like safarimama, ovenbird, kimburu and predatorbiologist who have been so helpful, if you could please look at these and tell me what you think, I would appreciate it.

All of these were taken at the Volcanoes Mt. Gahinga Lodge just outside the gate of Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.

(1) Some sort of bee-eater, or roller:

(2) I have no idea what this one is, but it has a long, curved beak and was hanging around in a flower bush:

(3) African pied wagtail? Just a guess based on a bird you all identified for me from Ngamba Island:

(4) Yellow-billed kite?

Thanks again for your help with these. I have one more gallery left to put up (from Ruhija and Buhoma), and there will be a few more unidentified birds in there as well.

Chris
