Thanks for all your suggestions.

Opinions are divided with the first bird from Mareeba Wetlands thought to
be Little Shrike-thrush, Grey Shrike-thrush, Bower's Shrike-thrush or an
immature Olive-Backed Oriole.  The feature that has me confused is the dark
plumage on the thigh; I can't find anything similar in field guides or
photos on the web.  However, I'm leaning towards Little Shrike-thrush.

I think that the second bird from Mareeba is the same species as the one
photographed at McLeod River and I agree with the consensus that they are
White-bellied Cuckoo-shrikes.

Once again, thanks to all those who offered suggestions.
