1. Sanderling
2. Blackburnian Warbler
3. Ruddy ground dove ( I think )
4. Laughing gull
5. Maybe osprey, look a bit odd to me though

Agree with all except #2, which is a Yellow-throated Warbler.

(Possibly the Osprey are nearly-fledged young?)

Agree with Peter on no. 2

Ignore the blackburnian warbler suggestion!

5 look like a Hawk-Eagle of some sort. Possibly juvenile Ornate Hawk-Eagles?

Definitely not Ospreys.

They are ospreys Jim, the ssp ridgewayi is mostly white headed.

Well certainly more likely near human habitation, I guess I'm probably being fooled by the angle. My first thought on looking at thumbnail was Ridgeway's Ospreys, but they just don't look right in the full photo: Eyes look small relative to head, and too close together, and beak looks dark and massive, with the appearance of a crest. This seems closer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/head_for_a_hat/1781442559/

Any more photos? Was their forest nearby? If not, must be Osprey. Was thinking this might be a mayan ruin near jungle, but on second glance looks like something more contemporary.

Definitely Ospreys.

Think the eyes are partially closed in the nest photos, which made eyes seem small.
