I think 4 is a 1st-winter Brown Shrike.

5 is a difficult image but if you look closely, it's grey all over with darker flight feathers, it clearly has a casque, even if a small one, a broad white trailing edge and a long graduated tail, so it must be Indian Grey Hornbill.

Agree on 1-3.

EDIT: No possibility of confusion with Malabar Grey Hornbill anyway.

Thanks. Have attached another image of the Hornbill. Can you check if it helps?
