Hunter's sunbird is an East African endemic generally found in lower, dryer areas with acacias. The identifying iridescent malar stripe can be difficult to see (see photos above with and without stripe). The left 3rd row bird was seen in Same (4-19), courtesy of Sadik Kassam. The nest was photographed on the Maasai Steppe (3-12), courtesy of Paul Oliver: click it to see twelve enlargements. The other photos were taken in Olasiti, Oldonyo Sambu, Shambarai and at KIA Lodge.
