Neighborhood Birdlife

It could just be that I'm paying closer attention, but it seems like there are a lot more interesting birds around here lately.  Could it be spring time?  I've noticed a good number of bald eagles, which are much too far away to photograph, and a whole lot of what my completely untrained eyes think are swans.  

I tried looking this up, but "swans have longer necks than geese" is actually not very helpful.  If you know what these lovely birds are, please let me know.  Mostly I just enjoyed taking some pictures of them.

I was really fortunate to see this flock while riding home from our local farm store yesterday.  It's yet another thing that I love about riding my bike for transportation - I notice all sorts of things that I might just breeze by in a car.
