I see a juv semipalmated sandpiper and a juv least sandpiper. The bill on the first bird is too thick and blunt to be a stint. Always great to post more pics though if you have them.

1 looks better for northern waterthrush based on narrow supercilium behind eye, coloration, and what looks like spotting in the throat.. Agree on red-shouldered hawk.

This is a scarlet tanager, based on dark wings and dark gray under tail. The best reason why it’s not a hepatic tanager is because they don’t occur anywhere even close to Florida.
