Don't know exactly how many, but I saw a bunch of them way above a 30+ story building! So cool!
I saw them for about 20 minutes, at least. First seeing a few right out my 14th floor window, then followed them as they flew higher to see the bigger gang of them! I know absolutely nothing about their migration process but it seemed as though they were all gathering before moving on.
They were heading south, for sure. The winds yesterday were out of the south, maybe southwest. There wasn't much wind speed...it was cloudy and raining on and off. When I saw them, it wasn't raining.
