Surveillance video in the Mexican city of Cuauhtemoc captured an astonishing event last week – a flock of yellow-headed blackbirds suddenly fall from the sky. Suggested causes for the mysterious fall range from environmental pollutants, near collision with infrastructure, electrocution from a powerline, avoidance of predatory raptor, to 5G radio waves jamming the bird’s innate navigation system.

According to the local paper El Heraldo de Chihuahua, the incident occurred on the morning of February 7, 2022. Locals say the birds tend to breed farther north, in the US and Canada, and migrate south for winter in Mexico.
