It looks like 10 and 11 are male lesser antillean bullfinches, 9 and 13 may be the female of the species.

Unfortunately I don't have a field guide to the area, but one or two I've managed to suss out:

# 6 - Key West Quail-dove - that white handlebar moustache is a good clue.

# 8 - yep, Scaly-naped Pigeon

# 14 - don't think that's it, as your bird has a much longer bill than pics I found of Scaly-breasted Thrasher. But not sure what it is!

Good call on the KWQ dove, I think 14 is a grey trembler after a little more research.
