White birds going home

video

My sister who lives in Mississippi on the Gulf Coast looked up and saw a large flock of white birds high in the sky.  I've been Googling around, hoping to find what they might be.  My best guess is that she saw a flock of homing pigeons that had been released at a wedding or funeral or other event.

Any other ideas?

(if you are like me, it's easier to look at the birds if the sound is muted)

I just can't tell - they are too far away. Could be pigeons.....We get sandhill cranes flying overhead -- their calls are unmistakable.

I couldn't see it clearly enough.

Taradharma and robin andrea: Thanks for looking.
It is pretty difficult for me to see, too. The only clues are the white color, the shape of the flock, and the way that they are moving My best guess still is that it was a flock of homing pigeons from a wedding or funeral.
