Thanks for the answers. Even though it's not nice to see dead birds, it is comforting to know they are (hopefully) serving a good purpose. Glad it is not a deadly virus or a senseless action of humans.
Have a great Sunday!

I was told by CDFW several years ago that the carcasses are left as (hopeful) deterrents against more birds coming in and preying on the tern nests.

There are 5 dead black birds, I am assuming crows, inside the least tern nesting area in Huntington Beach. All within 25 SQ ft area, close to the gate.
Does anyone know what is going on?
