Thousands of birds have been falling dead from the sky in America, and experts don't know why.

It's red-winged blackbirds that have fallen over the town of Beebe in Arkansas, just before midnight on New Year's Eve.

Some people think the birds were scared by fireworks causing them to crash into homes and each other.

Others say their deaths were caused by bad weather.
