Unknown, Ilha Grande, Brasil

I've seen this bird in october on Ilha Grande in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. The bird was on a big dead tree, inside the forest, together with a Picazuro Pigeon (the bigger bird on one of the pictures). It was an overcast, grey day, so the picture is not the best.
Can anyone help?

Looks to me like a piculet. According to this:
https://neotropical.birds.cornell.ed...cpic1/overview
it should be ochre-collared piculet and indeed I believe I can see an ochre collar. However, this:

http://www.sr2.uerj.br/ceads/images/...ves_Maria8.pdf
does not mention that species but only white-barred for the location. These two species [if they are species...] apparently interbreed. So it's one of these and which probably depends on your point of view.

More akin to Banded Barbet with that bill?

There are no barbets in that part of the world but yes, that's not a piculet bill. This is actually a female Swallow Tanager. Those tanagers have a very broadly based bill, barred flanks etc

Perhaps you're right but it's unlike any female swallow tanager I've ever seen. I too thought it was a barbet when I first saw the pic but then realised there are none there.
