This is a different pair of birds (though they might all be shown (at least in part) in the original photo). Top is a Semi Sand; bottom is a Least Sand. I think both are juvies.

Best,
Jim

Agreed, I should've looked closer at the primary projection on the top bird.

Sorry for the confusion, they were indeed different birds.
Thanks all for the contributions.
