I believe the "remarkably ugly" bird is a marabou. And your unknown bird picture 32 of 92 looks like one of the hornbills.

Good calls on both--thanks! (I was thinking the ugly one was a vulture, which I know we saw, and when that wasn't it, I couldn't figure it out.)

I will update the posts & gallery.

The blue and gold unknown bird *might* be a bird of paradise, but I'm a lot less certain of that than the other two. Thanks for posting your zoo pictures!

Yeah, that one should be in the small mammal house, but the Zoo's website doesn't admit that any other bird than the hornbill is there.
