I have not been to Cuba but have experience with the other contenders. I will agree that 1 and 2 seems to be Shiny Cowbird. I think the bill is too short for Grackle in the third image, however, due to the angle of seeing it mostly from below I am not sure about the shape of the bill and therefore not sure - but this could be a contender for Cuban Blackbird. Any other (even unsharp) images of the bird in image three?
