Birds Dying Again; Again a New Year

Today’s paper had a small sidebar note that 200 blackbirds had died from the shock of a New Year’s celebration noise–firecrackers, I believe. That strikes me as sad in two ways:that they died from fear, and that such deaths aren’t uncommon. Admittedly, I preferred thinking mass deaths resulted from a grand cause. I keep trying to ascribe a grand cause to most things.

    I read that this year they actually found firecrackers at a roosting site. Did they find firecrackers at a roosting site last year or was someone attempting to emulate a grand cause? –Kristine
