    I am surprised by the attention given to this in media.
    There are a lot of sites writing about it and even more coments.

    What's interesting is the number of different explanations to this deaths from fireworks, tornadoes, cold weather, toxic military gas to Tesla's secret weapon, from the God's wrath to the environmental change.

    But what really makes me angry is this way of writing "Dead birds happen, there is nothing to worry about folks"

    You can even argue is this natural or not but it is certainly something to worry about.

    Zed, i was looking at David Suzuki's site recently. I think he fell into the camp that there's nothing to worry about. I mean he said this sort of thing happens all the time. This is nothing new.
