Actually could well be a Plaintive Cuckoo for the second bird - http://www.flickr.com/photos/rracine1/6925674997/

I'm seeing a Streak-eared Bulbul personally, abundant in Bangkok.

I agree with Brown-throated Sunbird and Asian Palm Swift for the others

I have added an enhanced picture, its the greyish head and red eyes which makes it different from the streak-eared

Always a chance of an escapee of course, but the only native Bulbuls in the Bangkok area are Yellow-vented and Streak-eared (Red-whiskered might come close, but that's a moot point as it certainly aint one of those).
