Starlings, huh? 100 hit by one truck??? Looked like they were... committing suicide?!
The mystery surrounding 100 dead birds between Healdsburg and Geyserville appears to be solved. The European starlings were found dead on the roadway and shoulder at Highway 101 and Independence Lane, just south of Geyserville Saturday afternoon. State wildlife officials Tuesday said the birds were hit by a truck, a conclusion drawn from a witness statement and the condition of the birds at the scene. “All the signs point to blunt force trauma,” said Andrew Hughan, spokesman for the state Department of Fish and Game. “It looks like they were hit by a truck.”.... ...brief necropsies showed the birds suffered broken necks, Hughan said.... ...It appears a swarm of the birds flew directly in front of a big rig, he said. The big rig didn’t stop, but a witness later called authorities to report seeing the bird strike, Hughan said. “She said it looked like they were committing suicide,” he said.
