I have narrowed it down to 4 different Woodcreeper. Perhaps you can tell me what it is, seen in Manu Lodge area of Peru, Aug 19, 2022. A5FD6668-4E3F-49BA-A0F6-DEEFDBD2B893_1_201_a.jpeg

I think it could be any of these Woodcreepers: Olivaceous...Amazonian barred....Elegant...Buff throated...? Which would you say? Maybe a juvenile?

We can rule out olivaceous woodcreeper (wrong everything, esp bill), and Amazonian barred (clue's in the name). I struggled with your others, and other potential candidates for the site. Buff-throated should be "rufescent" and ebird images suggest more marked streaking than here [assuming we can rule out lighting effects].

I think this is Elegant or Ocellated (Tschudi's). Of these I'd go for the latter based because some refs suggest the streaks on elegant should have dark borders. It would be Xiphorhynchus ocellatus brevirostris. However, this pair is difficult and taxonomy complex (SACC don't recognise Tschudi's), best id'd by call.
