Numbers 1 & 3 are Flycatchers I think. Possibly the same species but which one I've no idea. Number 2 I also haven't got a clue. The bird appeared to have a very short tail although it might just have been the angle it was perched. Number 4 is possibly a Summer Tanager inbetween plummages.

This were seen a few days ago on my Costa Rican holiday in the tops of trees and scrub surrounding a car park near Playa Conchal.

1) Although the larger bird's bill has a bit of an icterid (blackbird) feel to it, I think this is probably female Western tanager. The smaller bird is a m euphonia, and since I can't see white in the vent, it might be something like spotted-crowned (if in range)
2) is an oriole, perhaps Baltimore?
3) a tyrannid but would require more work to figure out which flycatcher
4) might be f summer tanager as I don't see evidence of greyish tones to make it hepatic

Immature male for me.

Oops - yes of course (developing reddish colours on head): but you agree the species at least.
