From Today's Anomalist

Today at The Anomalist (click on this link and it will take you to each of the stories listed below):

Mystery of 75 Starlings Falling from the Sky BBC News. In Somerset, England dozens of Starlings shockingly crashed to their deaths in front of onlookers. With no apparent sign of foul play, the local animal welfare officer was at a loss to explain the odd behavior. Those who saw the birds slamming to the ground claim to have heard a "whooshing" sound just before the accident. Speculation leans toward an attacking bird of prey that may have scared the flock into a bad maneuver in an attempt to escape. But could a weather anomaly have been involved? Elsewhere, Large Light Green Luminescent 'Birds' Observed Over Hayward, CA. And speaking of mysteries, What Is This Mystery Fish? Again.
