1. Eastern Crowned Warbler (unmarked lower mandible, yellowish vent).
2. Ochraceous Bulbul.
3-4. I think this is Chinese Blue Flycatcher (brownish flanks, fairly narrow throat wedge). The checklist only has Blue-throated but it may have been compiled before the split.
5. I'm struggling a little with this one, but it looks most like an Iole Bulbul, presumably Baker's (cinnamomeoventris) in this location, variously regarded as a subspecies of Grey-eyed, a subspecies of Olive or a species in its own right). The checklist lists Grey-eyed but it only actually occurs in N Thailand.

Andy, that's fantastic. There's no way I can identify these without help. About to put another batch of small jungle birds up.

Any ideas? Are you thinking Ochraceous?

My first reaction was an Alophoixus (so presumably Ochraceous). It does look to me like it's got a small crest, or is that just a misplaced feather?
I'm not very familiar with Iole though so don't have much feeling for what they'd look like on a photo like this.

It doesn't have much of a crest or a puffy white throat, but it could just be wet. I would say it's possible it's Ochraceous.

Grey-cheeked also occurs but that would have yellow underparts.

Only one other photo which might help. It wasn't wet at the time and hadn't rained in the 3 plus hours that we'd been there.

Should be Ochraceous.
