Birding since 2006!

My mother was in Costa Rica in mid-March and has asked me to help identify some of the birds she photographed.

1. Are these all the same species of Tern?
2. Is this a Semipalmated Plover?
3. My mom thinks these are Brown Pelicans, but is the last one something different?
4. Is this a Whimbrel?

Thanks for your help!
