Blue-winged/Cinnamon Teal

I'm leaning toward Blue-winged for the two birds that showed their faces. I suspect all three of these continuing birds are Blue-winged, but I'm not adept enough at distinguishing them to be sure.

large shorebird sp.

They were on the beach just east of the lagoon when I arrived, but I didn't bother checking them out with the binoculars because I foolishly opted to take pretty sunset photos instead, figuring I could check them out afterwards. Then as I was shooting sunset pictures the flock crossed my field of view after being flushed. D'oh! I'm leaning toward Willet, but I couldn't make out the wing pattern in my shots of the flock flying away.
