The bill looks a bit better for common tern as well. Roseate tern bills are thinner and longer and it gives them an overall sleeker looking head profile.

Bird 2 in the last photo is a short-billed Dowitcher. The side profile of the head and the photo quality is perfect and definitive of short-billed. It’s subtle but the thickness and taper to the bill...

I think all of the ones you denoted are semis. I see the appearance of different sizes in the photos but the pattern of the breast streaking and the pale chins on all of them points to semi. Western...

Sings at 10-12, 19-21, 28-30. I hear it pretty clearly from my iPhone with the volume all the way up without putting the speaker up to my ear. Possibly incompatibility between windows and m4a files?

Agree, probably wood pewee on #1. I think eastern wood pewee is generally more wide spread in Texas than western but that’s obviously not conclusive alone.
