As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

DRAPER, Utah –Residents in Draper, Utah are confused after more than 200 birds fell from the sky onto the street Monday.

“It’s one of the rarest things I’ve ever heard of,” Sergeant Chad Carpenter with the Draper City Police Department, told KSTU.

“As I was driving, these birds were just falling out of the sky,” said Draper resident Lacey Brown.
“They were all on the ground right around here and on the roadway,” Brown said, “They were just falling out of the sky like leaves,” she added.

But they weren’t leaves, they were hundreds of small birds called starlings.
