UNDATED (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Some of the nation’s top experts are looking for clues into the sudden, mass deaths of birds in three states.

The deaths of thousands of birds were first reported in Arkansas over the weekend.

Now, officials say more birds have been found lifeless in Louisiana and Kentucky.

There continues to be speculation about the cause of the deaths. Some believe it was caused by New Year’s Eve fireworks scaring the birds, strong thunderstorms that caught them off guard plucking them from their roosts and thrusting them into the air.
