More Dead Birds Fall Mystery Near Sullivan Missouri, VIDEO Latest In Series Of Dead Birds Found In Other States

Dozens Of Dead Birds Found Near Sullivan, Mo.

Latest In Series Of Dead Birds Found In Other States

Dozens of dead birds are discovered near Sullivan, Missouri about an hour southwest of St. Louis. People in and around Sullivan are calling the whole thing a little weird. The scene is just east of Sullivan along the I-44 south service road at Winsel Creek. The Missouri Department of Conservation is looking into the situation.


It was discovered on Monday.


Experts there and with the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park say the dead birds are Starlings. Starlings are among the dead birds that have been found in several other states recently.
It started new years when thousands of Red Winged Blackbirds were found dead in Arkansas.


The reason why all of this is happening is still unclear but a spokesperson with Missouri Department of Conservation does have some theories.


"Our cold weather- sometimes a sudden change in weather and effect populations and they can die because of shock and temperature change- obviously we've got a lot of cold weather. Tornado events can sometimes suck a lot of birds up and kill them, obviously we've had a lot of that weather going along in recent weeks too," said agency spokesperson Dan Zarlenga.


James Bartle, the editor of the Sullivan Independent News, took photos of the scene.
More than 50 dead birds can be seen in the newspaper pictures.

But Bartle says there could have been many more in a nearby field.

  1. I was amazed at all the geese and what appeared to be blackbirds or starlings flying in the O'Fallon/Lake St. Louis area this weekend. The numbers were unusual!
