I wonder if anyone could help me naming the species of birds in the photos below. They were all taken on a Safari in Tanzania recently, however I cant for the life of me remember what the guide said they were.

No prizes - Just for fun :) . Thanks in advance

I thought no2 was a crowned something or other and I remember no3 being something to do with the two rings on its neck. I just cant remember what.

Thanks Nighthound.

I had originally searched for peregrine falcon for No1 but I cant see any pics on the net of the colours of the one above.

After a longer look that bird's belly and breast it's lacking any distinguishing pattern. Maybe a Barbary or Lanner?

I'm changing my mind and going with what Steve said..Augur buzzard. Red-necked doesn't reach down into Tanzania.
