WHAT?!? I never see dead birds!! In fact, that is (for me) one of life's great mysteries -- where are all the dead birds? When you think of how many living birds you see every day, you'd think the streets would be littered with dead birds, you'd be shoveling them off your sidewalks & driveways... like feathery piles of snow... hmm... Anyway, where do you live? It's possible the birds are being poisoned, either intentionally or accidentally, by some type of poison in their food source. Are you seeing a LOT of them... really a LOT? If so, I'd call animal control, they can get in touch with environmental services who will test things like the local water supply & soil in the area for poison.
Maybe you're bad luck ... Ha just kidding . If u look it up online it only pops up as "why do my parakeets keep dying" or "why do birds in my yard keep dying" so it's probably just a coincidence that you see lots of dead birds . Hey you could be that one creepy kid that says that he sees dead people but you can say "I see dead birds" :)
To me this is no major ordeal winged animals have tumbled from the sky before for no known excuse for why. The winged animals show sway harm that could have been from an eruption (such as firecrackers) or could have been from hitting the ground. They don't hint at any irresistible sickness.
The odd bird here and there, is perfectly normal. It's happens in nature.
But, if it is happening often enough to get your attention, it could be a localized event..Which could be caused from a number of things. They are either sick or they have been eating something that has poisoned them. Call your local health department. They need to know about this.
are they spraying pesticides in your area?. There are several noted cases of birds dying in mass numbers. Although there is sufficient evidence to experiments near govt/scientific research centers close by they usually blame it on fireworks or lightening. We have a lot of birds here(no govt/scientific research centers) fireworks and lightening . Never have we had mass bird deaths.
A couple of years ago the Goldfinches were dying en masse. They had some kind of viral thing going on. Birds are fragile, some will die from mold in the seed people put out for them, some will be killed by pesticides sprayed on plants or the grass they move around in. There are pollutants in our water. I hate to see them dead, but it's hard to prevent. Our cats go out a night so they can't kill birds, but I'm sure they eat the carcasses.
