Took these on a visit to Singapore's amazing Jurong Bird Park. I've got the names for most of the birds I took except these...any ideas anyone?

Wow, beautiful. I'm particularly liking #3, just partial to the smaller birds. :)

Nice Paul, beautifully birds.
Maybe Romi will stop in, as this is his backyard. (did you give him a ring while there?)

Never could I ID these extraordinary birds Paul, unless I lived in Asia of course, but you have picked some stunning birds for photographing and the colours and details are excellent, well done.

No 1 looks like a Spotted-backed Weaver, also know as the Village Weaver (Ploceus cucullatus)

Reference: Newman's Birds of Souther Africa

Done a bit of research myself and I'm pretty confident it's a 'Nicobar Pigeon' (Caloenas nicobarica) originally from the Nicobar Islands.
