These were photographed last year, just outside Dhaka.

My guess:

1) Crow-billed Drongo
2) Orange-breasted Green-Pigeon (because of yellow and black markings on the wing, which I think are missing from Yellow-footed Green-Pigeon)
3) Hoping for Blue-eared Kingfisher
4) Smaller ones should be Lesser-Whistling Ducks, but I'm not sure about the bigger one(s).
5) This should be a fairly common one, but I'm not sure right now...

Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback.

Cheers,

Jose

1. I suspect this is a Black Drongo. Rictal spot just visible, black-and-white pattern on undertail-coverts suggests an immature.
2. Sorry, this is Yellow-footed.
3. Sorry, just Common.
4. I think the larger ducks are Indian Spot-billed - certainly the strong head pattern of the bird on the extreme left suggests it. Yellow tip to the bill just visible on the bird in the centre.
5. Plain Prinia.

Thank you, Andy. Great feedback!

It was the black-and-white pattern on the Drongo that made me think of Crow-billed.

Cheers,

Jose

Jose, in 4 if you meant the large dark duck in the middle then it must be a domestic mallard type.

Looking again, the head pattern on the bird on the left isn't right for Spot-billed - could be a female Mallard. Bil ahape and pattern is wrong on the bird in the middle.
