Hey guys!

I randomly found three images of birds I couldn't ID 100%. Maybe some of you know what these birds are? They are all really bad photos but may be enough to ID them. Thanks!

Seen from the Tsawwassen Ferry Jetty in a flock of Sanderling flying about. It was seen on October 23, 2015.

Weirdly enough, this bird was seen in the same flock as the Godwit. It almost looks like a Sooty Shearwater but that would be very odd. Same date and place as the previous pic.

This one was seen at Inkaneep Provincial Campground near Osoyoos. It was seen on May 22, 2017.

Thanks in advance! :D

The flycatcher's posture reminds me of Western Wood-Pewee but honestly i'm just guessing.
Mike ID'd the others on flickr already i believe.
