Explanation: Bird - Possible

While pruning a tree observed objects circling est. 5000 ft above surface.

Working in back yard, first observed 3 or 4 light objects circling in sky, sun glinting on portions of the rotation. Soon observed very large group, not well organized but in general also circling. Seemed extremely high elevation for flock of birds, is what grabbed my attention. I've experienced seeing flocks
of sea hills in perhaps similar patterns, only near the surface of the ground. So high and distant, I could not determine size, or shape to confirm if birds or..drones, which I quickly came to question the possibility of.

I observed their activity about 30 minutes, until I was distracted then I returned and they were gone.
