seems too small for a Drongo. Maybe it's just me, but it seems pigmented rather than glossy...

The raptor might be a Jerdon's Baza. Barring on primaries and underparts, plus hint of tail bands all seem better for that IMO. Plus the size and jizz don't seem right for a Hawk Eagle, but happy to be wrong!

Yeah, the outer tail feathers remind me of Spangled Drongo.

Could the second one be a female Fairy Bluebird?

tail is too long for Fairy Bluebird, it should also be black on that species.

I see where you're coming from with the tail feathers, but I was thinking it might be about to/just finishing a tail flick? I'm still not 100% on it being a Drongo given the apparent size of the bird

but then again I might be misjudging the size of those leaves...

As Adam says the tail shape is right for Drongo - and Hair-crested at that. Pigeon is Spotted Dove and raptor Changeable Hawk Eagle.
