What would cause these birds to die?
We live in a suburban neighborhood, with a lot of wildlife coming to visit or cohabit. The other day I was walking back from a nearby park, and I noticed a dead robin. Okay, I thought, the cycle of life. Then I noticed another nearby, and another, and another. I counted a total of 6 dead robins that had not been there in the past two hours. I did not notice any other dead animals in the vicinity. I contacted the appropriate authorities, and they will send someone out to investigate.
What would cause so many robins to die in one spot at one time. ?
