Cool sighting! Seeing these large flocks of ducks is neat. Great shots!

You got a lot better shot than I have been able to so far!

I have been on the look out as they have migrated into our region also!

This is very cool. I love it!

WOW! I'll bet this was exciting to see (and hear!) in person! Great photos - it always astounds me how huge flocks of birds can all turn or rise as one entity without crashing into one another! (Humans driving in parking lots or intersections could learn a thing or two from our feathered friends!)

there were actually two swarms - the top picture shows just one.
and it was eerily silent, except for the waves

Totally amazing. I saw something similar on Thursday and am posting about it on Monday, But you got much better photos of the birds flying in.

What an amazing sight. Great shots!

They look like they might be black-caped petrals. I love how they land and fall into a single long line.

What a sight! And probably what a sound too?

I'm guess they are Canada geese.

Nice photos, I find it always difficult to make photos of birds. They are always moving too much.
