6. Euphonia sp, do you have a more exact location in the country? Olive-backed would be my guess with the minimal rufous on the lower belly.

16. Chestnut-sided Warbler

Olive-backed and Yellow-crowned are the only euphonias supposed to be in that park according to eBird, so I think that Olive-backed is a safe bet. 

17. Looks good for a Rufous-tailed Hummingbird.

26. I think this could fit Green-crowned Brilliant better, just as there isn't much copper in the rump and the tail has a more bluish iridescence. I personally probably can't put a confident ID on it just with the back though. 

29 is a juvenile Green-crowned Brilliant. 

What was the location for #30? It's a female mountain-gem, and they have pretty distinct ranges to help separate them.

30. Purple-throated Mountain-gem. Location always helps, but turns out female White-bellied Mountain-gems actually look considerably different, and there are just mis-identified photos online. 

31. Common Tody-Flycatcher

32. some kind of Elaenia... probably Yellow-bellied Elaenia, but I'm not confident on that. 

33. Black-and-white Warbler

34. female Summer Tanager I believe

35. Myiarchus species (a genus of flycatchers)... I personally won't be able to identify this. 

36. White-eared Ground-Sparrow

37. Rufous-collared Sparrow
