The folklore here says that the birds commit suicide over here. This has puzzled many a ornithologists who can see the birds actually diving down to death. One reason that has been attributed to this mystery are the lights that baffle the birds on moonless autumn nights, as they become disoriented and loosing their balance plummet down to death.
