GILBERTSVILLE, KY (NEWSCHANNEL) - Days after thousands of birds dropped from the skies in Arkansas and Louisiana, a Kentucky woman says she has found dozens of dead birds in her front yard.

The woman says she discovered the birds several days ago but cleaned them up - assuming her outdoor pets were responsible.

But then she said she found more dead birds on Jan. 3, right after hearing about the Arkansas bird deaths, and panicked.

A state biologist said "six birds" isn't an issue considering there are millions of blackbirds.

And while he couldn't say for sure, he guessed the birds simply died from some sort of winter stress.

No other birds have been discovered or reported in Gilbertsville, which is east of Paducah.
