Neil,
These 4 photos were also taken on the North coast, between Merida and Cancun.
Thank you for your help. Ugolino

No 1 I think is the yellow form of Mangrove Vireo.
No 3 I think is Yellow-green, but if the dark edge of the crown is black and the yellow on the underside is reflections from leaves, then a Red-eyed Vireo which would be a migrant in that area.

Photo 2 reminds me of a Pewee. I usually try to stay away from flycatchers when only on photos.

4 could easily be a yellow-olive flycatcher, but again, I am not great at those from photos.

A general comment: the straight line from Merida to Cancun will take you through mainly relatively wet forest or pastures. A few miles further north gets into a much dryer habitat.

Thank you Niels,
I had yellow-green Vireo for photo 3 and yellow-olive Flycatcher for photo 4, so you confirm my initial thoughts.
Photo 1 is still puzzling me: you suggest Mangrove Vireo, but I do not see the wing bars....
Too bad for photo 2...as these small flycatchers are so tough...
Best, ugolino
