For the shorebirds, the 2 back right birds and the 1 back left bird are Dunlins - note medium size, fairly long drooping bill, brownish gray color. The frontmost bird is I believe a Western Sandpiper - note small size, black legs, rather long slightly drooping bill.

The other two birds are dowitchers. Note that they are medium-large shorebirds with long, straight bills, fairly long legs, chunky bodies, pale eyebrows. I believe these birds are Short-billed Dowitcher but I'm not confident in that. The back one is still in some juvenile pumage.

Agreed. I think the dowitchers are indeed Short-billed.
