northern alberta

over the last couple months there are two, long thin legged birds whose necks are equally long and thin as the legs, walking around the highway near a place called twin lakes. these birds haven't been seen lately but were seen late summer an september. they are both spotted brown, feathers, with small heads an to be honest look like walking sticks with a small elongated body with little wings. They would be approximately 4 feet high, not very hefty just tall an skinny looking an they seem to frequent the same area on a daily basis. i tried looking in the birds of alberta website but couldn't even come close to saying who they resemble. a sand crane comes closest but those have blue feathers an have lots of feathers, these birds have short brown feathers an long sticky looking legs an necks an a smallish head. i couldn't see their beak but am certain its smallish. any help in identifying these two birds will be helpful.
