The scarlet-chested sunbird has a blue or green throat which can be difficult to see and which distinguishes it from Hunter's sunbird. The 3rd row photo (Lake Nakuru, 1-17) is courtesy of Karine Van der Vurst; the 4th row (Kisongo, 7-15), courtesy Paul Oliver. The other photos were taken in Mwiba, Ndutu, Morogoro, Emayani and Tarangire. The first eight enlargements are of a pair building a nest and then feeding young in Olasiti (6-08).
