  1. Yellow Warbler -- the yellow in the tail is diagnostic
  2. Black-crowned. Yellow-crowned have longer legs, and darker primaries than back.
  3. Yes, juvenile Horned Lark
  4. Herring
  5. Herring
  6. Herring -- kittiwakes have sharper black wingtips, with not white "mirrors". Here, you can see a new incoming feather with a distinct large white tip. Kittiwakes are also smaller -- close to a Ring-bill.
  7. Sanderlings?
  8. Looks good for a Greater, with no white behind the eye, a bit of a white collar, dusky flanks and dark undertail coverts.
