1 - Savannah Sparrow? Yep
2 - Dunlin? A Calidris wader, but not Dunlin; can't make out which
3 - Short-billed Dowitcher? Yep
4 - Mallard? Yep
5 - Western Sandpiper? I'd go for Semipalmated, the bill is too short for Western

Thanks, Resin. Not bad. Just curious, why not Dunlin? I thought maybe it was in between non-breeding and breeding plumage, since obviously missing the black belly.
