Black birds, Ecuador

I won't give the Ecuador trip a rest, would I ...

Could these be something else than Shiny Cowbird (such as Velvet-fronted Grackle)? They don't "feel" like normal Shinies, but I have been burned before ...

First three (one or two individuals) are from Panacocha (deep lowland Amazon), the second two (one bird) are from Limoncocha, still lowland Amazon, but close to Coca.

Sorry, I can't make any of these into the grackle. The first recalls giant cowbird a bit but it doesn't have a pale eye
