I agree with this too, but how can you guys tell #4 is Swainson's? The lighting is not allowing me to see definitive traits of the facial pattern

The bird is in bright light, so it looks much warmer brown than it otherwise would. However, I'm still seeing a noticeably buffy face and no contrasting reddish tail.
