1) Looks good for WRSA

2) Actually a Semi- less streaked breast, more compact structure, etc

3) Yes

4) Chimney Swift

5) Short-billed Dowitcher (adult of the Atlantic griseus subspecies)- note longer, straighter bill, more bulky structure- Stilts are more tall and compact in appearance

6) Another griseus SB Dowitcher

7) The left and the right birds are both adult griseus subspecies SB Dowitchers. The middle bird is a bit of a puzzle. It's either a hendersoni subspecies Short-billed, or a Long-billed. Definitely not a griseus SB based on the extensive orange coloring that extends all the way down to the undertail coverts.

I'm not 100% sure on this bird. I'm only on my phone and I might be able to tell more downloading it on my computer. There are a couple subtle marks that I'm just not certain on.

9) Looks good

10) Yes


Edit- I'm not sure how that emoji showed up- I didn't click on it and can't seem to get rid of it lol
