Dear All,
These are from a trip a few years ago during the summer in the Pantanal; I am not certain the IDs for these skulkers are correct and would love it if you could cast your eyes over them.
From the left, here were my guesses:
-Pale-breasted Spinetail
-Plain-crowned Spinetail
-Rufous-fronted Thornbird
Would you agree or object to some ?
Many thanks in advance, ugolino

Think 2) is juvenile sooty-fronted spinetail. It's like this one:

[there's a Macaulay library image of juv of plain-crowned and it's quite different]
