Aflockalypse: Dead Birds, Fish Kills
Wildlife officials told ABC News on Dec. 14 that thousands of grebes, a duck-like aquatic bird, were migrating to the Gulf of Mexico, when they mistook the vast parking lots of a Walmart in St. George, Utah, and other surrounding areas for water and crashed into the ground. One official said around 2,500 to 3,000 birds were rescued. Shown here is one of the rescued birds.
