100+ dead birds found along road in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, USA #Birds #USA

Bird Alert

A flock of more than 100 European starlings were killed along Route 225 in northern Dauphin County late last week.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission believes the birds were killed by passing cars and trucks.

“The birds showed signs of blunt-force trauma,” said Travis Lau, communications director for the commission. “It’s believed they were struck by one or more vehicles.”

The 100-plus dead birds, along approximately 40 yards of Route 225 about a mile east of Halifax, were nearly all on the eastbound side of the road. The majority were off to the side of the road, although a couple dozen had been flattened on the eastbound travel lane.
