once again i refer you to you tube there are stories about both Baltinore and Ketucky incidents on there , how about trying to look before you criticize everyone. Anyone in the Johnstown area check out the 50 or so dead blackbirds at the intersection of the Elton RD. and Theater drive they are squished in the intersection from traffic but they are undoubtably birds. I also noticed several large flocks of blackbirds here today and it's January , they are not supposed to be here now.

I heard the fireworks thing too. That's just silly. Not even a professional high powered fire work show but a hill jack show. If fireworks scared birds into heart attacks my guess is hunting expeditions would be more successful.

They are attributing the fish kill to an unknown virus.

Not that I disagree, I think the fireworks explanation seems far fetched too. But they aren't saying it scared them into heart attacks. These birds roost at night in huge flocks and don't navigate too well at night. They're saying the fireworks disrupted a roost and caused them to take flight in a panic, followed by running into buildings, trees, and each other, and its these collisions that caused death.

The explanation of the firework theory, as I understand it, is that the birds were scared into flying at rooftop level, as opposed to tree top level. The birds apparently have crap night vision.

Folks have been setting off fireworks for as long as there have been fireworks , has there ever been an incident of bird firework death documented before? The fourth of July would create even more bird death than New Years Eve wouldn't ya think?

Probably but I don't know. Mass bird deaths are common, they're just getting more attention right now.

No. Well, perhaps, but more a one here, one there thing than the mass death in a small area incidents that make the news. Birds are generally flocked up in the winter, but not in the summer.
