Bird ID help in Cambodia (1 Viewer)

Hi all,

Can someone help me with these birds please?

The first pic - I know the one on the left is a chestnut headed bee eater - but is the right a female, or a seperste type of bee eater?

And not sure what the second and third pics are if someone could please help?

I can just see one pic, and both birds are (Oriental) Green Bee-eater

Thanks a oot Laery.

Cqn you let me know what features enaboed ypu to ID green bee eater rather than Chestnut headed purely out of curiosity?

These are the other pics

The larger bird looks like a young Starling, maybe Rosy.

The other is a Prinia, not sure which without checking the book.

I agree that the first picture is Green Bee-eater. Adult on the left, juvenile on the right.

The second looks like a juvenile chat, I would say probably a Pied Bushchat.

The third is a prinia, I think Plain.

Agree with Green Bee-eater, Pied Bushchat juv and most likely Plain Prinia. As for your question of "why not chestnut-headed": adult CH has strong chestnut head, bright-yellow cheeks and throat and no streamers (this adult one has).
Cheers, Arend
