I think its a cool photo and I like the city atmosphere in the background, it gives the photo a mood or feeling.

Nevermind. I just downloaded the pic (no worries, will be deleted asap ;)) and zoomed in.
The way they are flying in line and the way they are shaped they remind me of Cormorants.
They fly by in great numbers so that's my best guess.

Hey Kevin,
just crop for example the left corner with the flock there.
That might give us an idea.

Compare bird's silhouette shapes. Take zoomed images at maximum clear and check compared shape of bird.

This is a great migrating photo! I think its so cool that they fly in a-V- formation and I have not seen this very often.Good photo!

I'm afraid this could be anything from Cormorants to Gulls.
Do you have anything closer to the birds?
Or can you crop a portion, so we can see the birds up closer?
