These may be eagles, and I think they’re too big for crows. I couldn't tell for sure while watching them and am still not sure in looking at the pictures. 15 of them were just west of 10th and Park, way up in the air, soaring in quiet (crows would have been talking), lazy circles, heading east (i.e., away from the river). It reminds me that last Sunday I was on the bus and watching out the window. I just happened to see, west I-25 at Central, a very similar large, single bird soaring. So... could they be eagles?

Turkey vultures! They're magnificent fliers.
Turkey vultures! That would explain why they gathered -- maybe watching for downed balloonists? I think I've actually only heard about eagles gathering in Alaska, bald eagles waiting around for fish handouts. This is really cool -- thanks for the proper ID! It's so great to have fascinating birds considering our area to be home.
Yeah I recognize that formation as vultural - our area hosts them a lot.
