I agree on #1, but why do you guys think #4 is also a Social Flycatcher? It looks v. much like a Kiskadee, because a) it's got very rufous pp. edging, and b) it looks like it's about to go fishing!

I think #2 may be "Doubleday's" Hummingbird (given location, Guerro state) but I am not clear how recognized that split (from Broad-billed) is.
I see what you are saying Peter. The bird does look rather "short-faced" and lanky from that angle, though. It's a shame we aren't really getting any coloration on the crown.

Here are different angles of the bird,not much yellow on the head except for a little dot. regards Dave

The Great Kiskadee's do sometimes show the yellow crown!
