Hummingbirds from Columbia

Can someone please identify these hummingbirds taken at La Minga Columbia in July 2019?

Gonna get these wrong: 1) and 3) andean emerald. Very bright white unds. Look like they may be the same individual: reddish lower mandible only really apparent in 1). 2) long-tailed sylph (wedge-shaped bill, fairly uniform unds). 4) Female crowned woodnymph. Grey on throat is very dark but I think this is the lighting. 5) Female white-necked jacobin: white tail feathers and speckling which appears to continue into the throat area. Duller/darker green compared with the emerald and white not as bright.

Sounds good to me.
BTW 49bentley, the country is Colombia, not Columbia

Huh? But surely there was a time when it was pre-Columbian...
