Thousands of Birds Die in Utah

Thousands of dead birds may have mistaken parking lots for ponds in southern Utah, as they were found scattered throughout the state. Several thousand were saved by rescue missions, but many died from the mass crash landings. The surviving birds were released into an actual body of water.

One spokesperson said it was the worst downing he had ever seen in the area, and more widespread than others.
