The whole group were on one stretch of wire, intermittently flying to nearby fields. I can't remember seeing this kind of aggregation of this species, and I usually see them on the ground, not on wires, but the pictures are clear.

Not common here. I missed the ID until I was looking at the photos. I had thought it was another Savannah, but the large bill and white wing edge were not as apparent through the binoculars.
