1) Western Willet I think.

3)  Semi-Palmated Sandpiper next to the Sanderlings.

4)  These Ibises were right next to the park headquarters.  While my wife and I were taking photos a park employee pulled over and said they were glossy, which I was pleased with.  I am having my doubts after looking at the photos.  Opinions?

5)  First thought was Orchard Oriole.  It looks like the hood does not come down far enough and the wide white wingbar looks wrong. I can't think of anything else it could be though.

6)  This one was just at the edge of beach hanging on some grass stalks.  I thought it also looked like an Orchard Oriole.

Thanks for looking.

For the ibis, I’m seeing a little more red on the face in the second picture, which is making me thing it’s a White-faced juvenile.
