Hello can I have help with these IDs all photographed a couple of Days ago in Drakes Bay, Costa Rica. Not the best pictures as the Woodpecker was moving between light and shade Possible Lineated Woodpecker. 2. Very distant Mangrove Swallow ?. 3. Dont Know. 4. Poor picture again maybe Spotted Sandpiper.

Agree with Spotted Sand and the Swallow, 4 looks to be a Palm Tanager, think the first pecker is Pale-billed.

Don't have books her to check the others.

According to two different field guides, there is no white stripe into the head of Pale-billed and therefore this is lineated.
