2. American Redstart

I think 5 is Yucatan Woodpecker (similar to Red-bellied WP).

I'd agree with Yucatan Woodpecker. Golden-fronted generally shows much more yellow on "front" (right over bill).
Agree with Niels on 1,2,3, &4

I agree with the IDs except for the woodpecker. It looks like a Golden-fronted Woodpecker to me (subspecies dubius). This subspecies has red on the front like this bird and has a long bill like this one as well. Yucatan Woodpecker has a smaller bill and orangish on the front.
As for the flycatcher, maybe a pewee species?

Additionally, Yucatan has yellow feathers encircling the base of the bill, according to Howell and Webb. This bird has red feathers at the base of the upper mandible, a dubius Golden-fronted character.

Well I was half right, my ID was dubious
