Tree Swallow

I could not be sure every one of these were Tree Swallows but the majority were. Huge wad of swallows moving across the bay from the tower. Never seen this many together. White underneath. This is probably a very low estimate. There was another huge flock came by about thirty minutes after the first one. Not positive if this was the first flick circling back around or not.
