Another Set from Northern Thailand

Thank you again to everyone who has been helpful in IDing the mystery birds from my last trip. Here is another set from around Chang Saen Lake near the Golden Triangle.

The first looks like a Bulbul to me. I believe the second and third are Chestnut-Tailed Starlings. I think the fourth is a trio of Ashy Woodswallows, but their underparts look quite dark.

Thanks!

Thanks for the IDs. I see so many Streak-Eared Bulbuls that I always hope I've spotted something different . . . wishful thinking! I was thinking the last one was a Flycatcher, so I'm glad to know which one. Here are a few more photos from the same area I'd love some help with.

The last one seemed pretty big, so I wondered at the time if it was an oriole, but now it looks like a Black-Headed Bulbul.

I did see some other Little Grebes that morning, so that is probably right.
