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,

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.
