Hi Dominique,
Surfed over from BF. This isn't smyrnensis. No white collar. I would say that this is an immature Pelargopsis capensis, bill should be orange or orange-red in the adult and with a little more rufous-orange in the collar in the adult. The other possible H. pileata can be excluded as there is no black in the wing among other things.
