They froze to death. The Ice Age is coming, triggered by Global Warming. Or, eh, they fried to death. Global Warming is coming, triggered by the Ice Age. We need to put soot over the ice caps, bury our cars, and begin dunging our back yards to revert back to earlier methods of habitat-control. Technology is dangerous. Back to the horse-and-buggy. Lobsters are turning black. Gulls are falling from the sky. And our birds' heads are falling off!

Happens frequently here on Dauphin Island. The birds fly all the way across the Gulf Of Mexico and they're so exhausted when they get here, they just quit flying and fall out of the sky when they are over land. There is even a word for it that I can't presently remember.

10,000 birds fall from sky From correspondents in China MORE than 10,000 birds died mysteriously in eastern China's Jiangsu province, dropping like rain from the sky, state media reported yesterday. Farmers and other witnesses in Sangongdian village in Taizhou city saw flocks of bramble finch suddenly fall from the sky on Tuesday, the Beijing Youth Daily said. Most of the birds were dead when they hit the ground and some were injured, it said. The birds look like sparrows and are small in size. Officials from the local centre for disease prevention and control rushed to the scene.

Ah, the mysterious Kerry bird of New Zealand.

It often decides not to fly before it is actually done flying.
