    Thanks for these pics Raceway. At first I was also confused - to us Capeys your pics ARE a bunting, until one looks at the book for the Long-tailed P Whydah hen!

    This guy has been bothering me. Very difficult from pic and size is even more tricky. One guess would be Burntneck Eremomela immature. Or Bleating wabler (Camaroptera brachyura),but the distribution is off. Check all the wablers and alike.

    My best guess would be a juvenile African Red-eyed Bulbul. That eye...

    I realise that:
    • the sound doesn't make sense, but on the juveniles it seldom does
    • the "yellow" tufts under the shoulders are baffling, but it could a trick of the light (See attached specimen from Google sitting in a similar fashion)
    • the head appears too lightly coloured, but I've seen one that was completely white


    Still just a guess, but that would be my go-to.

    I hear what you are saying.....but also the leg colors and tail shape. Square vs round?

    No yellow under tail, unless immature this should rule out Bulbul.

    Grey-backed Camaroptera...?

    Fairly small in size
    Found within the region
    Leg colour similar (as best as the first photo can portray)
    Call is a repetition and seems similar to what @etienne1 described
    Yellowish green wings
    Rounded tail end
