Yet Another Unfortunate Incident of the Day: More dead blackbirds, this time in Louisiana:
Hundreds of dead and dying birds littered a quarter-mile stretch of highway in Pointe Coupee Parish on Monday as motorists drove over and around them.
State biologists are trying to determine what led to the deaths of the estimated 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings on La. 1 just down the road from Pointe Coupee Central High School.
I’m not one to jump to conclusions, but we’re all going to die.
Earlier: 5,000 dead birds; 100,000 dead fish.
