I know nothing about birds other than most of them fly, but I'm starting to get a little more interested in them.
Hiked all the way between the gas pumps at PJ to find these little guys.

As limited as my birding knowledge is, I would concur with Txlj

I'll go out on a limb and say that they are young birds.  ;)

My guess is Say's Phoebes (Sayornis saya).  They look like the Say's Phoebe chicks that I've seen.  Like all phoebes, Say's Phoebes often choose human structures to nest in.  I've seen a pair nesting on top of a light fixture on the side of the Lodge restaurant the last couple of years.
