Looks good to me, and if Mark says it's right then It's generally right.

Its an interesting challenge rulling out Nightingale on the second picture. Carefully placed branches obscure where the supercilium would be, as well as tail and primary projection... doesn't look long enough legged to me though.

Recon you can just make out the end of the super though, and the darker cap.
