Hummingbird ID - Tequesquitengo, Mexico 27/2/21 (1 Viewer)

Saw these hummingbirds in Tequesquitengo, just South of Mexico City, Mexico. 1 & 2 were taken at the same time and 3 & 4 were taken at the same time, but I believe it could be the same bird or same species. The last 3 are the same birds, there were about 5/6 of these small hummingbird roaming around the tree.

I have no idea what the first 4 are, but wondered if the last 3 could be either White-bellied Emerald or Green-fronted? I know hummingbird ID can be notoriously difficult so any help would be much appreciated, thanks,

Gracie

I’m thinking 1-4 = Broad-billed?
and 5 and 7 = Violet-crowned?

This will need confirmation from others.

1-4 are either Dusky or Broad-billed. I'm thinking Dusky due to the dull back. I agree with @KenM for the second bird, looks like a Violet Crowned to me.

Any images that show the upperside of the tail of the first one?

Looking at ebird it seems both dusky and broad-billed could be expected.
