A section of downtown Austin, Texas is closed after dozens of birds were found dead this morning. It is felt there is no imminent threat to the city. Workers are testing for the cause of the death of these birds.
Police shut down 10 blocks of businesses in the heart of downtown
As many as 60 dead pigeons, sparrows and grackles were found
"We do not feel there is a threat to the public health," said Adolfo Valadez, the medical director for Austin and Travis County Health and Human Services. He said preliminary air-quality tests showed no dangerous chemicals and the area should reopen around noon.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Last month, thousands of dead birds were found in Idaho. Now we have another case in the US where large numbers of birds have turned up dead.
These mysterious deaths are a concern to many.
Could this be the beginning of Avian flu in this country or are other environmental issues causing these deaths?

Good find.

Maybe it's another one of those strange fungi that cause bacterial lesions...

The above was a joke (maybe a bad one).

The following is fairly relevant info.

...including bioweapons-related pathogens - in the air above San Antonio and Austin, Texas. "We're surrounded by bacteria, and they are not necessarily friendly," says Gary Andersen, a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Maybe I am just a paranoid........
But doesn't the use of chemical & germ warfare
and the testing of it
come to anyone else's mind?

'They' are blaming the bird deaths on parasites and a drop in temperature.

I highly doubt this is the truth. Maybe it's the old conspiracy theorist in me talking.
