It’s Raining Ducks in Texas

During an evening lightning storm earlier this month in Texas, Martha Hughes of East Decatur heard a thumping on her roof and no doubt thought, Boy, it’s raining hard out there. The next morning, she woke up to find 26 common mergansers—all charred and dead--scattered around her house and yard. Apparently, the whole flock was struck down by lightning. Here's the whole story.

O.k. that's just weird. I could see the lightening hitting one bird, but not a whole flock.

Definitely a unique story.
