birds inside greenhouse at St. Louis, MO, Botanical Garden

there are two species inside the tropical greenhouse at the St. Louis Botanical Garden. Does anyone have any idea what they are?
1. Starling size but longer tail, black with iridescent red on neck and head, bill is large, triangular in horizontal plane, lower mandible is sky blue/pale blue
2. Thrush like but caerulaean blue with a white panel on secondary coverts.
These are surely tropical/rainforest birds as far as i could tell.

Thanks.
