Cars deadly for birds on 295
About 200 tiny chimney swifts were struck by cars along Interstate 295 Wednesday.
The American Bird Conservancy said in a statement that it's possible "atmospheric conditions forced the birds to fly very low to the ground where they were struck by passing vehicles."
The bird strikes occurred near the city's Blue Plains wastewater treatment plant.
According to the NBC report, Hawkins said three birds were being examined to make sure the deaths were not connected to the treatment facility.
