Hi again Kristin,
So far as I can tell your cisticola (the small bird on the stones on the ground) was a Rattling.
The bill morphology fits well, the face is quite plain with paler, whitish lores, yet no distinct supercillium, the (moulting) tail feathers are largely brownish and the primaries of the wing appear slightly more rufous than the remainder of the well-streaked upperparts. The crown and nape (pileum) is much brighter rufous than any other part of the bird, but not excessively so, and is seemingly only lightly streaked. The sides of the upper breast look to be washed darker, possibly with a more greyish-brown than is the primary 'ground colour' of the bird's upperparts.
So, to me it looks as if it was the nominate form i.e. Cisticola chiniana rather than the East African coastal form C. c. heterophrys.
Thanks a lot for posting this one.
