SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- About 50 dead birds were found dead on a roadway in Springfield, Mo., officials said.

The dead birds were within a span of 50 feet of roadway, the Springfield News-Leader reported.

Kailey Frayer, who lives near where the birds were found, said she first noticed the birds about 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

"They weren't there when I left, and an hour later, they were all there," she said.

"It's a curiosity," said Ellie Mason, who lives nearby.
