Hi All,

   This photo taken in Oconee County, Georgia, Piedmont area of the state.  Sunday, December 1st afternoon.

Best photos I could get of these high flyers.  Could these be cranes?

Thanks for your help.

I think they're Sandhills.  I think almost all of the black we see is shadows.  That includes the markings toward the end of the left wing on the third and last birds, which are shadows from their necks.

I tried to force White Ibis, Whooping Cranes, and Wood Storks but couldn't make them fit.
