Officials Investigate Mysterious Bird-Kills Along Atlantic Coast

"Virginia Beach, VA -- Wildlife officials are trying to determine what is killing hundreds of sea birds that have washed ashore in Virginia Beach and other locations along the Atlantic coast in the past several weeks.

Similar reports have come from the Outer Banks of North Carolina; as well as Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head in South Carolina.

Most of the birds are greater shearwaters, which are now migrating north from their breeding grounds in the South Atlantic. "
