In a village in India called Jatingha, in state of Assam, at the end of monsoon months, mysterious behavior of birds puzzle bird watchers and enthusiasts. During moonless and foggy dark nights, flying birds come crashing to the ground with no prior warning whatsoever. The local tribes first took this natural phenomenon to be spirits flying from the sky to terrorize them. This phenomenon is not confined to a single species, with Tiger Bittern, Black Bittern, Little Egret, Pond Heron, Indian Pita and kingfishers all being affected.
Natural irregularities were speculated as the reason for this abnormal behavior.Â The time is not far to know the minds of the birds or get kicked by a bird for bad behavior 🙂 Sky divers, beware!
