Unexplained lights over Lake Superior

I was sitting waiting for a friend in front of my window which has an excellent expansive view of Lake Superior and the Duluth harbor. I noticed clusters of four bright lights in seven groupings flying from northwest to southeast over the lake and harbor. At first I thought they may be seagulls reflecting the light from the setting sun off of their bodies or wings but the lights stayed constant and never varied in distance or intensity from one to the other. I further believe I would not have been able to see them at all if the light had not been just right.
