Shore birds - St. Petersburg, FL - ID request

A mixed flock of shorebirds in St. Petersburg, Florida. I cropped out the individual species. Some may be the same thing, I'm bad with these...

Agree with Andrew on 1-3, 6-9
#4 is probably a Willet.
#5 could be a Western or Semipalmated Sandpiper (still a bit early for Semipalmated here if the photo was taken recently: please include date!)

I agree with all, but 4 and 5 (don't know).

I was in that area last week and only found about half of those....but I got some nice terns and gulls and a long-billed curlew.
