No 2 is a vireo from the red-eye/yellow-green complex

#1 might be Scarlet Tanager. I agree with Niels on #2. I wonder if #3 is an Empidonax flycatcher.

Yes, 3 is. In the last, I wondered if the middle bird was an over-exposed euphonia but I've not reviewed systematically

The Vireo looks rather brown backed and plain lored. I had it down as a Warbling on first look, and am struggling to make it Red-eyed/Yellow-green.

Two Yellow-winged Tanagers and a Yellow-throated Euphonia for the fourth.

Slightly better view of Vireo head

A little motion blurred but perhaps easier for ID.
Most likely Least Flycatcher or possibly Yellow-Olive

1. How about eg Wilson's Warbler? Looking on phone, but legs look too slim and pale for S. Tanager. Ville does look broad and pale, but could it be a trick of the image?

2. Agree with Warbling Vireo or local alternative if there is one.

3. Agree it looks like an empid

Oops got my wires crossed between vireos and flycatchers on previous reply.

Bird 2 is most likely a Warbling Vireo as everyone has suggested

Bird 1 Wilson's is very likely

Bird 3 is likely to be Least Flycatcher or possibly Yellow-Olive flycatcher

I agree with Larry, Wilson's is plausible for #1.

I agree that #2 is likely a Warbling Vireo.
