Jorupe SW Ecuador - 2

Hello all,
the next set of question pictures.

First is a bird with graduated tail which I think is a Striped Cuckoo. However, a reasonably good bird I met thought it was a Pacific Elaenia, so which is right?

The remaining four are all Woodcreepers or similar. I initially thought all were Streak-headed Woodcreeper but then were told that the juveniles of Red-billed Scythebill were similar (I heard but did not see adult of that species). So what are these (2-5)?

thanks
Niels

Why Elaenia for this one? There is a dark stripe back from the corner of the mouth that is present on several images from different angles, and the other images I have show the tail as square, not graduated on the Elaenia?
