ID Help - Vietnam birds (1 Viewer)

Hi everyone. I was looking through my pics from my trip to Vietnam in April 2017 and noticed a few birds I have missed. I would love to have a confirmed ID for them please. Excuse the poor photos, I was only a budding birdwatcher back then! My guesses are:

1: Some sort of dove (Red collared?)
2 & 3: Oriental Dollarbird
4: Indian Roller

Many thanks :)

1. Spotted Dove.
2 & 3. Agree with Oriental Dollarbird.
4. Rollers in SE Asia (including Vietnam) are now commonly split as a separate species, Indochinese Roller.
Thank you so much! The Dollarbird and Roller are two new lifers for me! I didn't know about the split either. Thank you :)
