Florida birds - Dunlins? Red Knot? Unknown

Recommended Posts

In Florida, in early February, I called pictures 1-4 'Dunlin', altho I still wonder if they could be Western Sandpipers.  The first three pics are the same bird, I think the bill too long to be Western, and maybe back too gray.  so, I went with Dunlin.  Number 4 is a different bird, again I called it Dunlin.

Number 5 I went back and forth Willet vs Red Knot, settled on Red Knot, but for all I know could be something different.

In a different location, an area called Bayley Tract on Sanibel Island, I found the bird shown in 6 and 7.  Long way away, pics may not be good enough.  I ended up thinking maybe it was an Eastern Phoebe but wondering if others have better ideas.
