Yes it might be this but then it might be one of a number of similar sunbirds so I can’t agree. Lovely though aren’t they, sunbirds are one of my favourite species.
Much easier to tell in the field.
Could be an emerald sunbird too.
I wish I knew more about them.

If you look at the beak on the left hand bird closely it is obvious these are not sunbirds -I thought a weaver of some sort or a cuckoo shrike to start with now I think it may be a flycatcher but of the two most likely bluemantled has a wing bar and white tail has white outer tail coverts - neither has a white supercilium
You are right sunbirds ae lovely but the birds in the picture are not sunbirds
Although the left hand bird most probably isn't a sunbird (although I can't discount a young sunbird as I am not familiar with the species) the right hand one could still be as you can't see the bill in this photo. I see there is another photo (in another observation) of the green bird with the bill exposed and it looks to be a sunbird as it is feeding from a flower.

The left hand bird looks very sparrow like
Which is why I wondered about weavers
