Yep, that sounds normal. If nothing is coming to get them they'll pile up and it can look distressing. No signs of nosema (poop on the hives or landing board) and what appears to be a good strength hive clustered in the box with adequate stores? It appears they're doing fine.
I've got something that's coming and chewing the dead up and spitting them out once all of the "juice" is gone. Looks like a bunch of lose wads of snuff. Except, the wads are chewed up bees.
