Hmmmm......seems you're right. I was looking at the Wikipedia list for the birds of China, but it's not on the Avibase checklist, and according to HBW it doesn't occur. But that's the closest I could...

Aren't the birds in the 2nd image Spotted Owlets? They do look a bit Frogmouth-like in this image.

There is no Slender-billed Crow in TN? That we should have known beforehand, we wouldn't be furiously imaging all the crows :))

I made the mistake of walking all the way up to the cairn at 2925 m from Gergeti village last July. Not getting a lift up to the church made all the difference. By the time I reached the cairn I was...

I'm struggling to see tramlines on no. 4. I'm seeing a buff lore, white super above and behind the eye and buff ear-coverts with a dark spot to the rear. It doesn't really have the characteristic...

No. 1 seems to be feeding at mid-tree level, which suggests either Scaly-crowned or Rufous-crowned rather than Ferruginous, which feeds lower down. The bill shape and and extensive pale bill base...

I think the last one could be Puff-backed but I'm pretty sure the other three are not. The first two look like Spectacled Bulbul to me, and maybe the third one too.

Not sure about the Vultures right now as I need to check some references, but I agree with Grey-bellied Cuckoo for no. 3. However, I think no. 4 is Olive-backed and no. 5 could be Rosy.

For me it was the apparently small build, small bill, sharp demarcation between cheek and breast (almost like a moustachial) and uniform pale orange underparts.
