Arrow Help with two birds in Argentina

Both these were spotted on an Estancia 80 km West of Buenos Aires today.
I thought the first might be some kind of Hoopoe.

And the other is a Chalk-browed Mockingbird (almost sure)

Yup. Southern Lapwing and Chalk-browed Mockingbird, unless it was seen in the coast, then could be the very similar Tropical Mockingbird.
