I was driving to my boyfriend's work and noticed there were a bunch of black spots on the ground around 45th and Coulter.

As I got closer I thought to myself, "looks like a shredded up black garbage bag." As I came to the light to my horror I realized they were all birds.

I snapped a quick photo at the red light. I figured maybe they froze on the power lines above or were electrocuted. Some of the birds were flattened by passing cars. Either way, nature can be really brutal.

Thoughts as to what happened?
