Today I counted 7 small birds w/ 2 Killdeers on a beach in Monterey near a freshwater pond - are they this year’s young?

First photo has one of the adults in the foreground.

Thanks.

The lower bird of the two in the upper right?

No, but I’m thinking that one might be a Semipalm, though probably Western. 
The LESA is the second one from the left.

The second photo has a Least Sandpiper.

Here’s another photo - is the Least Sandpiper the one w/ the yellow legs?

I did some reading last night & am curious about why they are in Monterey in early July vis a viz. their migration?

I’ve been returning to the same spot in Monterey to work on my Sandpiper ID skills & today I got this blurry shot before the bird scurried into the foliage - is this one a young Killdeer? It’s about the same size as the Sandpipers & I’ve been seeing/hearing 2 adult Killdeers in the vicinity.

Yes, that is indeed a juvenile Killdeer.
