I try to find an interesting subject for Monday Mysteries and this one might just fit the bill.
While the mass deaths of some birds here in the states are more and more common, this one from India seems even more strange. I found this story over sat Listverse.
Birds have been dropping dead worldwide in recent years, and this is a lot worse than finding your pet canary at the bottom of its cage. In Kentucky, hundreds of sterlings and robins were found on one woman’s property. In Chile, thousands of flamingos, 1,200 penguins and 60 pelicans died over the course of 2 months. Mass bird deaths are happening with alarming frequency in recent years, but one place in particular stands our more than any other: Jatinga, India. Every year in this small village, birds will fly themselves into the ground. There are many mysteries surrounding this case: Why do they do this at all? Why does it affect different types of birds? Why do the birds only do this along a small stretch of the road? Why does it only happen in September? And why do the birds do this after sunset, when they are usually only active in daylight? Many people visit this spot every year to see the phenomenon occur for themselves.
You have to admit there is something really mysterious going on with all these mass deaths involving birds. Whatever it is, I'm glad it doesn't happen close to where I live!
Coffee in the kitchen again today. there may be some more rain coming.
