Authorities now believe fireworks are to blame for the thousands of black birds that litter Arkansas streets and lawns.
Game and fish officials think fireworks on New Year's Eve startled the birds from their regular roost-and disoriented and lost-they say the birds probably ran into each other.
But residents aren't buying that.
Dozens of the birds were dissected Monday at three separate labs-and autopsies show they weren't poisoned-and they didn't suffer from any disease.
