Here is a link to the top bird in the first picture, with a selection of the many Common names used over the years: http://www.kenyabirds.org.uk/ferengi.htm...
The bird down by the ears in the first picture is this: http://www.kenyabirds.org.uk/ox-red.htm
For correct identification of African birds it is better to always use the correct up-to-date scientific name as in many cases several different common names have been used over the years and many of these names point to different species in different countries, depending on which references you use.

So glad you came to that conclusion on your own, Lenny. I will be deleting both ID suggestions as this spotting is for the rhino, not the birds.

First photo is a northern white-crowned shrike. Lenny, I don't think an ID suggestion is appropriate as this is in the mammals category and labeled white rhino. Just a comment with the bird will do just fine :)
