Migrating Sanderlings stopping over to fuel up

I found these two migrating Sanderlings working the small shoreline at Lake Meredith yesterday. These two must have left their breeding grounds early to arrive here on the second day of August.
I believe these are both in the process of molting from breeding plumage. I have tried to keep the coloration exactly the same but they seemed to have more orangish coloration in person than on my photos. SeEtta
