Visiting Indialantic beaches (Melbourne beach area) noticed 11 dead sea birds in 2 days. All the same species.

Probably died of shock when they saw the prices for housing, insurance and property taxes

I was fishing off of the Boca inlet 3 to 5 miles off shore on Sunday and saw 2 of these birds floating near weed-lines. There were also several of these birds diving at our artificial lures while we were trolling and this was the first time I had ever seen this happen. I am concerned and hope that whatever is causing these deaths, is corrected.

Just saw story on dead sea birds in the news. As my husband and I were fishing off Boca Raton on Sunday we noticed an unusual influx of starving birds on a weedline in 400 feet of water. We have fished these waters over 20 years and never had birds attacking our baits. They were getting tangled in the lines and we had to quit fishing. As we talked to other fisherman, we found they all had the similar problem. As we came in from fishing, we saw many dead birds on a weedline in 400 feet of water. They may be dead from flying into the lines of boats trolling as we were. People are writing about it on all the florida fishing forums online. In 20 years we've never seen this happen. Just wanted to share this with you.
