NBC 5 viewer alerts us to dozens of birds killed at a busy Collin County interchange.

There's an eerie scene in McKinney. There are dozens of dead birds lining White Avenue and Central Expressway.

An NBC 5 viewer emailed pictures of the dead birds to isee@nbcdfw.com.

We contacted the Collin County Game Wardens Office. A member came out and looked at that bird. While it was bleeding from it's mouth it had not been shot and appeared to die only recently.

By our count there are close to 50 dead birds, mostly Grackles, Starlings and Pigeons.

While this is a heavily traveled area, no one seems to know how or why the birds are dying.

The Collin County Game Warden's office visited had not received any calls about the birds prior to NBC 5 contacting them this afternoon.
