Cleansing flights?

Having been a Beekeeper in California zone 9a for many years, I'm currently experiencing several days of mid day flights after freezing and near freezing temperatures overnight, and I'm curious. What looks like a mix of robbing and orientation flights, I see several hundred bees swirling around each of my two colonies, and I'm wondering why it might be so. Are they just taking a bathroom break during the warmest parts of the day or might there be some robbing happening at what looks like two healthy hives.
