Aflockalypse: Mass Bird Deaths?
In recent days thousands of birds have suddenly and inexplicably died in the United States and other parts of the world.
The mass bird deaths include: five thousand blackbirds in Arkansas. One hundred pelicans near Jacksonville, North Carolina. Three hundred doves in Italy. Seventy bats in Tucson, Arizona.
And the latest incident, more than 80 pigeons have keeled over and died at a farm near Quebec City for unknown reasons.
I noticed the phenomenon has been called an Aflockalypse. What is going on and why the mass bird deaths?
