nice variety and well presented, you did well on ID's

Yes  willet,

Yes whimbrel,

the unknown sandpipers, look like dowitchers, there is long-billed and short-billed to choose from,

however, "Distinguishing wintering or juvenile Short-billed Dowitchers from the Long-billed species is very difficult and, even given examination their subtlety different body shapes, cannot always be isolated to a particular species. They differ most substantially in vocalizations."

(from a cited wikipedia paragraph)
