Meerkats and Tropical Birds..... Simples!!

Without doubt Meerkats win hands down in the cuteness stakes, and I never tire of photographing these little guys. It is so interesting watching them in their own little world, watching them in their enclosure at Chester they could quite easily be in their native african environment, constantly on the move with one always on watch on the termite mound. 
Folllowing are some shots from one of the free flying bird enclosures, just as we were there a keeper was feeding live food which brought a lot of the birds down out of the trees to feed. Ive managed to name a couple but can anyone please help with the ones I cant name?

Lilac Breasted Roller

Think this is a Weaver Bird ???

Can anyone tell me what this is ???

And this ???

And this, think it may be a type of Starling??

This is a Von Deckens Hornbill. just caught lunch

one of the wildflower plantations.... beautiful

I hope that someone can get back to me to fill in the birds above that I dont know, and feel free to drop me a comment.
