South Africa: some birds to ID

Hello everyone.

I need your help. I would like to identify these two birds, taken in northern South Africa, in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Parc.

Unfortunately, the second one liked to hide deep in the tree, making it difficult to photograph properly.

Thank you for your help.
