Birds Are Falling From The Sky

"I have never in my life encountered such a thing. I've heard of fish die-offs and other strange natural phenomenon, but I've never experienced one before. It was very strange, but very fun."
Cedar Rapids nature lover Stephen Gwin has been doing a good thing in helping to rescue surviving grebes from among the thousands of dead ones scattered around the Walmart parking lot that a flock of the migratory waterfowl mistook for a much softer landing pad, like a lake, and slammed themselves into. But "fun" is a strange word to read in this instance.

Ow. Awful. I wonder if the parking lot can be repainted to be less of an attractive nuisance.

i'm pretty sure that it's folks from Cedar City, not Cedar Rapids, that are helping out the clean up.
