I'll pass on the ducks, but I can confirm Palm Warbler and the last is a Ruddy Turnstone.

same here.  I could look at a field guide to compare on the ducks but I'd dare to say they're not mallards or most of the other common ones. Bill color looks like female on left, male on right.

Thanks for the IDs. I quit looking through possible candidates before I got to turnstones!

I'm hoping some Florida duck guru can help me on the first picture. It looks good to me, there is the clean beige head and strongly marked body. The bill colors seem right for male and female. I think I see a black spot near the gape that is diagnostic but there is some glare in the picture that makes it less certain than it would be.
