Have to move on to some different ones for now. All those terns are making me crazy!

#1-3 Looks like an immature cormorant? (not the tricolored heron)

# 4-5 The 4 brown birds in the back (in the water) with the long bill... possible to ID these from so far away?

# 6 --- Are these 4 the same long billed bird as in #4-5? (not the avocet)

# 7-10 ---- I think are yellowlegs, but not sure if greater or lesser

# 1-3 - Red-breasted Merganser, female
# 4-5 - Marbled Godwits; also, in #4, a Black-necked Stilt left of them, part-hidden behind the flying Skimmer
# 6 - yep, Marbled Godwits again
# 7-12 Greater 'legs: a fairly sturdy bird with a strong bill (needle-like on Lesser 'legs) with a grey base (just visible; all-black in Leser)
