Here are my suggestions:

1. Satin Flycatcher.

2. I suspect this is an immature Mistletoebird. Note the pinkish undertail coverts and pale gape.

3. Large-billed Scrubwren.

4. Tricky. The length of the tail suggests Brown Goshawk to me. Do you have another photo showing the face from another angle, or showing the toes more clearly?

Ok, it's definitely not a fan-tailed or brush cuckoo.  Neither species
have breast banding.  Nor does the Pallid Cuckoo.

The young ones do. My guess is an immature Fan-tailed Cuckoo.

6. Yes, Olive-backed Oriole.
