1. Pectoral Sandpiper?
2. Black-bellied Plover or American Golden Plover - I have trouble distinguishing between the two, but based on the apparently small bill and long wings my guess would be AGP. Definitely wait for second opinions on this one, though!
3. Same as two, not sure on the rightmost bird or the lower bird.
4. Semipalmated Plover
5. More Pecs

#2 looks like an AGP because of the long wings
Can't see the wingtips as well on #3, but I get the giss of AGP as well due to a daintier appearing bill

I would agree. AGPL appear more dirty-looking than BBPL, due to the golden spangling on the back.
