Bird Apocalypse

In the fall, we reported several stories of birds mysteriously falling dead out of the sky en masse. Scientists have studied these birds and found that many of them died from starvation.

Nearly 10,000 dead birds were reported between August and September. Over 170 carcasses were analyzed by the National Wildlife Health Center and it was found that 80% of them were emaciated with severely shrunken muscles, blood leakage in their intestinal tracts, and kidney failure.

How can entire flocks die of starvation at once? Researchers point to a severe drought followed by a massive cold sweep.

Or the apocalypse. Could be either.
