When I made this recording I was unsure if these birds were Nectarinia batesi (Bate's Sunbird) or N. seimundi (Little Green Sunbird). After checking specimens at the American Museum of Natural History I concluded thy were batesi. Adult gave rapid series (trill) of "chit-chit" notes. Juveniles gave high-pitched calls (single notes).
