6 or more objects over Seattle Science Center/Space Needle, irregular movement, disappearing and reappearing

Its 12am now on 4/11/13 so technically yesterday on 4/10/13 I slept in on my day off to later meet my girlfriend at 4 and went to Alkai beach in West Seattle. We arrived around 6. We sat down at the beach and drank coffee and tea and were talking about boats as we were looking around. I was the first to notice what we saw. I could see the Seattle center area and space needle and that above it there were many white or off white things flying around. The things flew irregularly, they took sharp turns, while gaining altitude. Sometimes they would briefly remain still, but I couldn't tell if it was because they were moving towards/away from me, or remaining in place. The objects would disappear frequently too, every 10-25 seconds. Couldn't tell if it was because of clouds. My girlfriend could also see all of this. First thing my roommate said to me when I woke up came to mind. "Its windy today" he said so I thought and told my girlfriend, "They must be birds caught in the wind." At the beach many birds were flying. I could see some birds more on our side of the water, flying. The birds were just about the same size as the more distant objects, all the way across the water by the science center/key arena area, in relation to my location at alkai. Not sure if there were any events going on, I tried to find some online with my phone but found nothing. All the time about 15 minutes pass, after my eyes begin to become tired I decide to stop looking for only about a minute as my girlfriend and I continued to talk.

Roughly a minute later we both look back to search for another few minutes but don't see the objects anymore. We left the beach 10 minutes afterwards and went home. I've looked online and found no reports so far.

My girlfriend is 20 years old, she was born out of the country and has lived in Seattle a year now and currently works at the airport she came in from. I am 20 years old, and was born on Capitol Hill in Seattle. I am a cook/worker at Seattle Fish Company, not far from the Beach we were at.
