UFO's practicing with the Thunderbirds?

While eating lunch and watching the Thunderbirds practicing over Nellis AFB, I was at the north end of Hollywood Blvd, which dead ends into Nellis AFB. I watched the Thunderbirds go through practice routines at about the 10:00 position and I noticed small white objects at the 1:30 position.

My first thought was that these were random pieces of paper caught in the updraft of a while wind (or dust devil). I have witnessed this before. These "papers" were very high in altitude, and hardly visible.

Then I looked back at the 10:00 position to watch the Thunderbirds do a low altitude pass over. As I was eating I looked back to the 1:30 position to see these objects slowly moving to the NE, and I noticed that there were 6 of these objects; the thought that these could be geese flying back north, and I wondered if there was any danger that the aircraft could hit them. I observed the objects for about 20 seconds, and noticed that the were not flying in any formation and there movement was very slow to the NE. My eyes went back to the 10:00 position, the Thunderbird were doing their 4 aircraft going vertical and spreading out at the apex of their climb, and noticed that the objects were in the same area of the apex of the aircraft. I quickly looked back to the 1:30 position and nothing was there. Then as I looked back, the objects were closer together, moving up and down slightly, and then proceeded to travel to the NW until they went out of sight. Immediately the Thunderbirds landed in a rapid procession.
