yellow headed blackbirds suddenly Mexico
Security footage captured the moment a flock of yellow-headed blackbirds suddenly fell from the sky on a street in northern Mexico’s Chihuahua state – but the reason behind the mysterious fall remains unclear.
Social media investigators are trying to solve the mystery of why dozens of birds have crashed to death in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
Police were called at around 8:30 a.m. on February 7 after residents reported the deaths of birds scattered across the sidewalk in Alvaro Obregón in Cuauhtemoc, a city in Chihuahua state.
The shocking footage, which went viral on social media, shows a cloud of yellow-headed black birds suddenly falling to the ground.
Despite the fact that the cause of the mass death is unknown, according to the local newspaper El Heraldo de Chihuahua, which first published the accident, a veterinarian speculated that pollution levels would rise, due to the use of wood-fired heaters and agrochemicals, as well as the coldness of the area, possibly causing it. .
Another theory suggested that the birds might have been electrocuted while resting on electric lines. It has been speculated on social media that 5G technology may be to blame, according to The Guardian.
The birds – later identified as yellow-headed blackbirds – were discovered lifeless on sidewalks by residents of the city of Cuauhtemoc, Spanish newspaper El Heraldo de Chihuahua reports.
El Heraldo de Chihuahua reports that a veterinarian who responded to the scene at the request of authorities indicated that the birds may have died from inhaling toxic fumes from a nearby heater or overloading power lines.
But a specific cause was not immediately identified.
