Smile Black catbird? Yucatan Peninsula - Mexico

Last month I visited Yucatan Peninsula as a part of my first trip to Mexico. Near the parking lot of Tulum, I took the single photo of this bird I thought was a black catbird. But not familiar with North American birds at all, I'm not really confident with the ID.

Well, I'm not familiar with Mexican birds, but this bird's beak looks very long and sharp. I wonder if it could be a Melodious Blackbird? Hopefully some others will have a look soon too.

This bird I saw at the central plaza in the small town Izmal, near Merida in Yucatan Peninsula, together with tropical mockingbirds, summer and southern tanagers and some wood warblers. I have no idea of its ID.

I did see a few clay-coloured thrush at Coba, but not juvenile. thanks again.
So another I'm not sure, which is so much like the little bunting here in China. I saw it at Teotihuacan, in bushes around the pyramids. I thinks it is lark sparrow, but not sure.
