ATHENS, AL (AP) - Around 300 blackbirds were found dead along Interstate 65 just in north Alabama.
WHNT-TV reports that the birds were found just off the side of the northbound lanes a little south of Athens.
Wildlife biologist Mitchell Marks says it appears the birds were feeding alongside the road and flushed and then flew into a vehicle.
Marks says all the dead birds had clear signs of trauma.
