It looks closeish to a Kyoga flameback.

But it also looks like the color has been enhanced with Photoshop (or equivalent) I can't give you a positive ID.

Hi jonchor, to me it looks weird as a flameback, the color seems to not match the classical flameback from lake Victoria and it seems quite strange as a Kyoga flameback, the upper part of the snout should be red orange and not blue, the snoput seems to be too smal also being a litle bit more elongated in kyoga flameback
musy o tunya the water sounds like thunder
