5 different birds / Oman

#1 -It was hanging out with some Rose-ringed parakeets, but I don't believe it's a juvenile.

#2 -I think a juvenile Stonechat?

#3 -Can we rule out Citrine?

#4 -I believe Pallid Harrier, but not 100% sure.

#5 -Can't really tell.

Thank you all for your input!

I think 2 is a Bluethroat?

Pic 5 Osprey?

1 maybe Plum-headed Parakeet?

1. Plum-headed Parakeet
3. Definitely Yellow Wagtail. I think western is the one there. The yellow back rules out citrine.
5. Osprey

Yes I think you're correct, definitely closer than Bluethroat :)

I agree with the IDs

1. Looks like Blossom or Plum headed Parakeet, which ever species it is it will be an escape and by the plumage it appears to be an immature female. There does not appear to be a resident population except of Rose ringed and Alexandrine Parakeets but feral birds are a problem in the area.
2. As Rafael says Pied Wheatear
3. Definite beema Western Yellow Wagtail - not uncommon on the eastern flyway and familiar in both Ethiopia and the Gulf. This is absolute a classic example of one.
4. Male Marsh Harrier
5. Osprey
