Could you identify these exotic birds please.

Some of them anyway.

The two in the first photo are Java Sparrows. The second looks like an Avadavat, though it also has another name which I can't recall. Don't know numbers 3 or 4, and the last group look like Mannikins of some sort. Presumably these photos were taken in an aviary/zoo somewhere?

I hope the following information helps -

1 Javan Sparrow (Lonchura oryzivora)
2 Madagascan Red Fody Juvenile (madagascariensis)
3 Nicobar Pigeon (Caloenas nicobarica)
4 Pink Headed Fruit Dove (Ptilinopus porphyreus)
5 Asian Glossy Starling Juvenile (Aplonis Panayensis)

I have a good idea that these photographs were taken at Chester Zoo
