In order to witness mess like this, caused by birds, you have to live in an Urban environment with lots of fast food and snack bars, places that either discard food waste themselves, or cause food waste to be disposed of by the customer, in a uncivillised manner.
What happens is that birds like pidgeons, gulls, and other scavengers come down, chow down on unhealthy high calorie food, and then literaly blow it out thier butts mid flight.
The colour difference between what you see in the country ,and what you would see in the bird droppings in an urban environment is down to diet.
Now obviously most folk dont witness an event of this size related to bird droppings, but the colour can certainly be explained by the unhealthy diets of birds which feed in urban environs. The flock must have all snacked on the same thing (perhaps an empty trash disposal out back of an eatery) and then got airborne before having a damned good poop, all over the freakin place.
Mind you , I dont understand why local government havent sent out a scientific advisor to take samples and run some simple tests on the substance. I mean it wouldnt take the most stringent genius in science to figure out what the stuff is !
