Yes on 2 and 3, congratulations on the Forest-falcon!

1 looks like a flycatcher of the social F/Kiskadee lookalike group.

Poor Judge of Pasta.
Immature Bicolored Hawk and Collared Forest Falcon can be a tricky pair. I think eg the shape of the border between black & white behind the eye makes this look more like Bicolored to me but if anyone can point to a smoking gun feature that says otherwise I'd be more than happy to revise my opinion.

According to field guides the color of the bare skin in the face points to CFF (greenish) over BCH (yellow)
