SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Springfield residents are baffled over dozens of dead birds found lying dead at a local intersection over the weekend.

The Springfield News-Leader reports 50 or more dead birds were first spotted Saturday on a 50-foot section of roadway and were still there Sunday.

Many of the birds were identified as starlings. One woman who lives near the intersection said she noticed them about 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

The National Weather Service told local broadcasters there was no volatile weather that would have caused the mass kill.
