Help with 2 from Madagascar

First pick was taken at Ranomofama and the second at Ifaty. Have looked through my Birds of the Indian Ocean but cant pick either of these. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First looks like a female Madagascar Magpie Robin of the albospecularis subspecies. Possibly a Madagascar Lark for number 2?

I'm happy to go with Sakalava Weaver. It was the pale bill and pinkish legs that got me thinking about the lark.
