1. Grassland (African) Pipit? 

2. Pretty confident this is Hildebrandt's Starling

3. Red-headed Weaver

4. Black-chested Snake-Eagle?

5. White-bellied Tit

6. Sooty Chat?

7. Brown-throated Wattle-eye

8. Black-backed Puffback

9. Slate-colored Boubou?

10. Isabelline Wheatear

11. Bronze Sunbird

12. Honestly have no idea on this one -- maybe one of the larks?

13. White-headed Buffalo Weaver? Doesn't look like that close of a match but that's my best guess.

14. pass

15. One of the eagles -- not sure which. Tawny, Steppe, and Lesser Spotted are all possibilities

16. Common Fiscal

17. Northern Wheatear

18. Black-winged Stilt chicks, I believe

19-20. Eagles again. Not confident as to how to ID them.

Welcome to Whatbird! I tried doing a few of these last night but gave up after a few. However, I didn't think #18 was a stilt due to the bill… even as a juvenile I would expect their bills to be longer and thinner, and photos online show them to be less bicolored. 

Also pretty sure #13 is a White-headed Barbet, and I think #12 is a Red-backed Scrub-Robin.
