Beijing Reports Mass Bird Deaths

A massive wild bird kill is reported from a Beijing suburb.

Dozens of dead blackbirds, mallards and magpies have been found along the banks of the Xiaojing River, according to the Huang’jiu Ribao newspaper.

A staff member of a centre for hygiene and epidemiological control does not rule out that the birds have died of starvation and unfavourable weather conditions.

Mass bird deaths for no obvious reason has been registered in Sweden, the United States, Italy and Canada since early this year.
