1. Bar-winged Flycatcher Shrike? It doesn't have the usual hammer-headed look but the white edge to the scapulars is long and fits this species.
2. Apparent crown stripe and hook-ended eyestripe point to Lemon-rumped Warbler, but as the similar Sichuan has been seen in AP, you'll need a better person than me to rule it out.
3. Yes.
4. Yes. Solid black face mask, small dark bill, white tips to the greater coverts and white outer-tail feathers are some of the features separating it from the superficially similar Black-faced Warbler.
5. Yes, because of the warm underparts (Red-billed white underneath).
