All seen in the Florida Keys, time of year noted before each group of photos.  I have 2 shorebird books (in addition to my bird app), and I'm still not positive on the ID's. 

Seen in August last year, these are 2 different birds, the larger one I think is a Semipalmated Sandpiper; the smaller one a Least Sandpiper (although I'm not sure if he has yellow legs or not).

3. https://photos.app.goo.gl/BRqizPovKHBbQzG59 (these are only the smaller ones from the first picture)

Is the bird that's looking up in this picture the same larger one in the first picture, or a different bird altogether??

These were seen in November last year.  I think there are 4 different birds here, all taking an afternoon nap.  I know the largest one is a Willet, and the one with orange legs is the Ruddy Turnstone.

I need help on the smallest ones with the all white belly and the one with a long beak (not the Willet).  I think the long beak one is a Lesser Yellowleg.

The white ones look like Sanderlings.

I’ll let someone else help you out with the rest as I don’t get much shore bird experience inland!

I got lots of views but only one reply, so I'm wondering if people prefer I post the pictures instead of links.

I'll create a second post for the other shorebirds.  THanks!

I can't speak for everyone here, but I would prefer photos loaded with the post, as opposed to links to separate websites. I like to compare comments about the photo/bird to the photo/bird and that's just easier to do if the photo is right there in front of me and not in a separate window/tab. Links to extra photos is probably a good idea if there's an abundance of photos though. Not that I can help with your IDs, but viewing the images is always nice since I usually skip past the links and obviously miss out on a lot of interesting photos.

I'm seeing all Least's (the smaller birds) and Semipalmated Sandpipers (larger birds) except for the last photo, which has a Sanderling on the far left.

[speaking to the question of links / photos, to add to what's already been said, with which i generally agree: I've found that clicking some photo links, on my device, posted to this site, disrupts functionality sometimes. this might occur for others, as well. it's especially lovely, i feel, to add the photos direct, when they are such good photos.]
