Thousands of birds make crash landing in Utah

Thousands of birds died on impact after apparently mistaking a Wal-Mart parking lot and other areas of southern Utah for bodies of water and plummeting to the ground in what one wildlife expert called the worst downing she’s ever seen.

Crews went to work cleaning up the dead birds and rescuing the survivors after the creatures crash-landed in the St. George area Monday night.
By Tuesday evening, volunteers had rescued more than 2,000 birds, releasing them into nearby bodies of water.

"They’re just everywhere," Teresa Griffin, wildlife program manager for the Utah Department of Wildlife Resource’s southern region, told The Spectrum newspaper in St. George. "It’s been nonstop. All our employees are driving around picking them up, and we’ve got so many people coming to our office and dropping them off."

Officials say stormy conditions probably confused the flock of grebes, a duck-like aquatic bird likely making its way to Mexico for the winter. The birds tried to land in a Cedar City Wal-Mart parking lot and elsewhere.
"The storm clouds over the top of the city lights made it look like a nice, flat body of water. All the conditions were right," Griffin said. "So the birds landed to rest, but ended up slamming into the pavement."

No human injuries or property damage have been reported.
Griffin noted most of the downings she’s seen have been localized, "but this was very widespread."

"I’ve been here 15 years and this was the worst downing I’ve seen," she told the newspaper.

Officials said they were continuing a rescue effort that started Tuesday afternoon and included an enthusiastic group of volunteers. The surviving grebes were released into bodies of water in southern Utah’s Washington County, including a pond near Hurricane.

"If we can put them on a body of water that’s not frozen over, they’ll have a better chance of survival," said Lynn Chamberlain, a wildlife department spokesman.
