Answer: These were birds. Birds cannot fly "among" or even "near" contrails as contrails occur at altitudes too high for birds to fly. These terms used in association with terms such as "white orbs", etc. imply these objects were higher than they actually were and subliminally influence observers/readers to interpret images presented according to the personal bias of the author and/or photographer. If the observer/reader already shares similar beliefs to that of the author and/or photographer, he or she will more readily accept the claims of the author/photographer without question.
