Just saw this on twitter. A mass of starlings (?) drop from the sky in a mass, which was caught on a home security camera. Meteor microburst stunning them? It's truly frightening.

"Dozens of birds mysteriously died today in small town in Chihuahua, Mexico."


About a week ago, I saw this news article about hundreds of dead birds falling from the sky in Chihuahua, Mexico.
The first article, coming from CNN, points to an electrical discharge, although I don't know if it could be questionable because it comes from CNN, or can be true??
-Nearly 100 birds suddenly dropped dead by lightning strike in Mexico, / Casi 100 pájaros caen muertos repentinamente por una descarga eléctrica en México

Or the second article points to toxic gases in the area or electric shock as well.
-Horror: the strange moment when dozens of birds plummeted to the ground in Chihuahua, / De terror: el extraño momento en que decenas de aves se desplomaron contra el suelo en Chihuahua

"Dozens of birds mysteriously died today in small town in Chihuahua, Mexico."

The above quote references an event from February 7th.

March 16th, another flock of birds fell from the sky in Chichuahua, Mexico, this time Snow Geese migrating from Canada. Article below, with confirmed reports from mainstream Mexican newspapers (in Spanish) linked at the end of the article:

The dead geese after they were gathered by local authorities.

At least 50 dead snow geese were found in a Chihuahua field on Tuesday, the second unexplained mass death of migratory birds in the settlement in just over a month.

The field is located on Mennonite land in the Swift Current settlement in Álvaro Obregón, about 156 kilometers west of Chihuahua city.
Municipal police officers said the geese didn’t bear any signs of injury or any wounds from firearms.

Although local authorities discovered the birds on Tuesday, a man whose property is adjacent to the field said the geese had been scattered on the farmland since Monday morning. Snow geese migrate from Canada to the southern U.S. and Mexico during the winter months.

Five of the fowls’ carcasses were removed for analysis by the federal environment agency Profepa, which also requested the assistance of the National Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Research Institute (Inifap), to determine how the geese died.

On February 7, 100 migratory yellow-headed blackbirds were found dead in Swift Current. The cause of the birds’ deaths remains unresolved, but surveillance camera footage shows them fall from the sky while in mid-flight.

Swift Current was settled in 1922 by Mennonite migrants from the Swift Current region of Saskatchewan, Canada. Many of the community in Mexico speak Plautdietsch, an old Germanic language.

With reports from Reforma and Milenio

Also, as noted in this thread, it also happened in Chihuahua back in August 2018:
As an aside, whilst looking i also came across another bird fall report in Chihuahua from August 2018. Obviously there may be others in that location too, but just thought i'd mention it.
