Hi Santiago!

Since after studying the Kaufman, Texas UFO video you came to
the conclusion that its "characteristics and parameters" were
consistent with the behaviour, movement and perfect synchronized
formation found in the Mexican UFO videos, you may have actually
confirmed that the correct explanation for these UFOs are birds
- just as Larry thought until he saw the very similar Mexican
UFO footage.

Although the objects in the sky and the leaves on the tree in
the Kaufman video are not in focus are are not clearly defined,
the behaviour of the objects are not inconsistent with a high
flying flock of birds such as seagulls. Since there are several
large lakes around Kaufman, the identity of these objects as
seagulls is not an unreasonable one. The movement of the objects
in the sky are also random and consistent to that of birds, such
as seagulls which, unlike Canadian geese, do not normally fly in
formation. As for me, I did not see anything in the Kaufman
video clip that supports what you say is motion "in perfect
synchronized formation" as one would expect for a fleet of UFOs
(or Canadian geese) flying overhead.

The observation that convinces me that these objects in the sky
cannot be symmetrical "nuts and bolts" manufactured craft or
UFOs is that, even though they are little more than out-of-focus
white spots, the spots do change shape and in brightness in a
random manner that further suggests Larry's first guess that
they were birds is the correct one.

Since such high flying flocks of birds are not unique to Mexico
or Texas, I will agree with you that this is indeed a global
phenomena. I recall one nice summer day in the late 1980s while
laying flat on a lawn chair in my backyard in suburban Toronto
reading Leonard Stringfield's 'UFO Crash/Retrieval' monograph I
noticed many white dots manouvering high in the clear blue sky
above me. Although I could not resolve these white dots as
birds, since it had rained earlier, I concluded that they must
be seagulls that moved inland from nearby Lake Ontario in search
of food. I did momentarily entertain the idea that this flock of
birds was actually a fleet of UFOs that for some reason happened
to congregate over my part of town and it did not take much
imagination in my part to believe this.

If white spots were indeed higher flying larger UFOs instead of
birds, I was sure they would have been noticed and reported by
many others living in this large metropolitan area (although no
where near as large as Mexico City for example). Apparently no
one else must of been thinking of high flying UFOs like me that
nice summer day because no one bothered to make an official
report so I concluded that the white spots were just birds
obervable only over my immediate neighbourhood.

Thank you again Santiago for sending me the video cassette of
the Mexican UFO fleet footage which I am anxiously looking
forward to see and have others view too, some of whom are photo
analysts and thus better qualified to evaluate such videos than
me. Each video that is suspected to depict UFOs flying in
formation must be studied independently and we should not allow
our biases or opinions, pro or con, to make pre-judgments
before such analysis is done. If we do, we risk looking foolish
and discrediting ufology in the eyes of the public.
