Hundreds of dead birds found on beach after storm at Lake Winnipeg in Canada

Patricia Beach

Flooding isn’t just taking a toll on humans and crops, it is also impacting wildlife.

After Tuesday’s storm the water of Lake Winnipeg rolled up and over Patricia Beach, leaving hundreds of dead birds behind as the water receded.

Michael Almey, who owns a cottage on Patricia Beach, said the birds covered the beach.

“They were all obviously drowned, victims of the storm, the surge of the tide,” said Almey.

A naturalist on site told us the baby seagulls were too young to fly away during the storm but may have survived had the storm hit a week or two later.

Residents said conservation crews plan to start clean-up Friday.
