DYING BIRD PHENOMENON | VIDEO: Tanner, Alabama Joins States Reporting Mysterious Bird Deaths


By Trang Do

     TANNER, AL (WAFF) – As drivers whiz by the Huntsville-Browns Ferry Road exit on I-65 North, specks of black in the stark white snow are pretty hard to miss.

Upon a closer look, you'll see that there are scores of dead black birds, about 300 of them.

Wildlife biologist Bill Gates of the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge said they're grackles, a native black bird.
