1. Pallas's Fish Eagle?
2. one of the Spotted Eagles - Greater or Indian. I suppose habitat suggests GSE.
3-4. Changeable Hawk Eagle
5. Not sure. Juvenile Crested Serpent Eagle?

That's a very short clip! The bird does wag or pump its tail a couple of times, but not vigorously.

Have a look at this video, which, although it shows a male, shows the typical restless behaviour...

Yes, it's abietinus we get. I suppose then that tristis is ruled out by the moult pattern?

No, I did mean undertail, because for some reason I thought the bird was facing us! Looking more carefully, it's clearly on the near side of the branch and has its back to us. It does look large and...

1. Brown Shrike

OK, fair enough. Clearly not Crimson with that undertail. I also read up about Khao Lak and species diversity isn't great, with as you say just a few species of sunbird to choose from.

3. Female Olive-backed Sunbird I think.
