(ORDO NEWS) — In the city of Valladolid in northwestern Spain, where temperatures hit an all-time high of over 40.6 degrees Celsius, strange bird behavior has caught the attention of residents.
Pigeons, swifts and even storks began to fall to the ground, radio station Cadena Ser reports.
The city police reported that calls from concerned citizens were received throughout Thursday. According to their stories, the birds abruptly lost height and fell to the ground.
In all likelihood, the cause of this behavior may be dehydration, which leads to a rapid decline, disorientation and inability to fly, the radio station notes.
