Deadly Effect Of Florida Drought and Fires

Florida, USA
May 12, 2007

Plants and wildlife are being severly affected by fires and lack of water

Small birds were dropping from the sky in one area of North Miami on the 11th. Stepping outside lately has been like stepping into a smoke-filled room. The fires have been burning for weeks now all over the state of Florida. They say those little birds couldn't breathe the air and with their tiny lungs just couldn't survive.

Hundreds of dead birds have been spotted in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Officials say the thickness of the smoke disorients the birds and causes them to fly into windows, resulting in their death. Bird experts say that the birds that weren't killed suffered severe head and neck injuries.
