Maybe Stilt Sandpipers? I think thats what they are.
Thanks for your input...
Although they were close to each other, the bird on the right had much more distinct side and belly markings than the bird on the left.
I was leaning toward Pectoral on the one on the left... but just had no idea about the one on the right.

I am not feeling Stilt for the bird on the right. The bill looks to thin, short, and straight.
I think both are Stilts. I think the appearance of the bill on the right-hand bird is being distorted because its open. All the other plumage marks fit best for a stilt, imo.
Latest birds: Bell's Vireo, Cassin's Sparrow, Pinyon Jay
