Bird ID Challenge: Final Installment

Jump to last reply

I have been very impressed by the discussions among this group in connection with my various unidentified bird pictures, and I've now put up the final gallery of pictures from our recent trip. The gallery covers southwestern Uganda, from Kisoro to Buhoma. There are a few unidentified birds in the gallery (and a bunch of really cute kids too). Here are the birds, and as always, any assistance the group can provide in identification with the birds would be greatly appreciated:

(1) small, energetic birds taken at the guest house at Ruhija, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park:

(2) These two look like some kind of weaver, and were taken at the Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Buhoma, just outside the park gate and on the edge of the forest at an elevation of roughly 4500 feet.

(3) This small blue bird was taken in the same place:

(4) This dark, iridescent bird had a very curved beak. Also taken at the Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge.

Thanks to everyone for their help.
