It's late here and I'm probably overlooking something obvious... The closest I could get was white-winged swallow. I don't believe the blue in the image is real: some photographic artefact or even...

Not a saltator in my view. That has a greenish back, black collar and white eyebrow. Also, the way it's perching would be unusual, I think [normally sit at a c 45 deg. angle]

I think the strong striping on the backs of all of them, coupled with the heavy chest streaks make these correndera. With the possible exception of the first pic, I don't see the pronounced malar...

No they're in order. I think "virtually all black" should be understood in the context of these birds in particular: I.e. somewhat subtle. The orange on the last is presumably the retained remnants...

Agree 4) is likely female ruby-throated
