Saw two migrating south today (12/3/14) flying very close together, a rare site. One year I saw a much larger group migrating through our High Dessert in Southern California. Their white wings just sparkled against the blue sky and that is what caught my attention. We only see these birds during migration and it is indeed a wonderful site.
