Kinda sounds like a convenient "perfect storm" to describe a "en masse" black bird death?

First they must quickly leave their roosts (I understand they roost together overnight). Then they get confused and either all fly, at the same time, in the same direction and run into each other, or alternatively downwardly into the ground. It leaves out any room for agility, common bird sense, or the will for self protection, which they must have, to some degree.

The "quick freeze" scenario is just too odd to discuss.
