I saw these birds at Morro Bay State Park along the boardwalk. The first bird (4 pics) I believe is a Black-bellied Plover based on what appears to be a white belly.  BTW, the peep in the second pic I think is a Least Sandpiper.

The next bird (pic 5) I thought was a Horned Grebe. I couldn't get a profile pic but this bird had extensive white on the face and seemed more slender than the Eared Grebes I saw nearby.

The last bird was seen swimming alongside a group of Buffleheads. At first, the head and thin bill made me instantly think Red-breasted Merganser, which is not uncommon in the area. However, It didn't present a good profile view and I was unable to judge it's size very well. It appeared to be only slightly larger than the nearby Buffleheads making my doubt my ID.
