Your 3rd, 4th, and 5th photos contain very good candidates for Baird's with the larger, slender form. Plumage also looks good for Baird's. Also, I'm talking about the noticeably bigger looking shorebird in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th photos.

All of your photos except for #2 contain at least one Baird's. Note the slightly warmer buffy tones than the surrounding peeps (All the ones I can identify look good for Semipalmated) and the long primaries, projecting the wing past the tail. The shorebird in photo #2 is a Stilt Sandpiper.
