Just some suggestions...

  1. Pectoral/Least Sandpiper?
  2. Semipalmated Sandpiper?
  3. Stilt Sandpiper with that long, decurved bill and white eyebrow.
  4. Juvenile Lesser Yellowlegs and Pectoral/Least Sandpiper?
  5. and 6. Red-necked Phalarope with that dark ear patch.

Agree with 3-6. Not sure about 1 & 2

If #1 is the same the individual in #4, I would lean towards Least given size alone.  Also, the base of the bill tends to be more yellow in a Pectoral (tough to see really in the photo though).

#2 looks good for a Semipalmated to me.  The short, straight bill, coloration and somewhat "bull-necked" appearance align with typical traits of the species.

Agreed. But Pectoral in both 1 and 4.
