We just returned from a roundtrip in Uganda and besides primates there're are lot's of birds (over 1000 different species).

AFAIK this is an Olive-bellied Sunbird. It's a heavy crop.
Perhaps a Red-chested Sunbird?
Can someone confirm this? Thanks

Any other shots of this bird? A few different angles might help in an ID. Where exactly in Uganda was this bird photographed?

Not much different angle.
It was in Entebbe at a lodge near the airport

After reviewing Stevenson and Fanshawe's Birds of East Africa, I agree it is an olive-bellied sunbird. The red-chested should have darker underparts, more blue than green upperparts, and, if intact, long central tail feathers.

Thanks Jared.
I probably will come up with a few more I don't know or I'm not sure about.
