Uh-oh. More disturbing bird news.
Experts are trying to figure out what killed 12 pelicans and sickened 100 more near Jacksonville, Florida.
The birds are being rehabilitated at Bird Emergency Aid and Kare Sanctuary, but employees like Cindy Moseling are especially concerned with these mysterious deaths, saying:
"The last few days, we've had quite a bit of birds dying," Moseling said and continued:
"There's something on their feathers that's taking their ability to repel water. They've lost their protection from the cold."
She and other experts know something is wrong, but don't know what. Most likely, there is something in the water.
Maybe this has something to do with the BP oil spill…or maybe worse.
Moseling's words ring eerily in our minds as she says:
"The birds are telling us something. The birds are screaming as loud as they can, and no one's listening."
