Now, I really have zero experience of hummingbirds of any kind in life, never mind the multitude of species in S America. Is it possible to ID these ones from the photographs my Mum has sent me from her holiday in S America? These were taken in Bolivia

00,03: fs of same sp but not sure without more work
01: planalto hermit (apparently greenish back + red lower mandible, face pattern). Presume taken somewhere in the south, perhaps +/- Santa Cruz
02: m fork-tailed woodnymph
04: probably glittering bellied emerald (red bill, forked tail). Also consistent with a more southerly location
