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
