After the viral video made rounds, the netizens have come up with different theories as to what could have happened.

“Looks more like the lead birds got confused, the dead birds look more like a result of a collision with the surface given that the surviving members of the flock flew back up,” a user wrote while another called the incident to be “apocalyptic!”

“This is incredibly scary and not the first story I’ve read about similar incidents happening across the world,” a third user.

Previously, more than 200 dead birds were found dead in a single morning around the World Trade Centre in the United States.
