Dead Turtle Doves In Italy, Mysterious Blue Stain On Beaks

According to Africana

"In Faenza, a town located in Northeast Italy, countless turtle doves were found dead, many with a mysterious blue stain on their beaks. According to, wildlife officials in Italy are suggesting that the blue stain is generally a sign of hypoxia, or suffocation. It may also be related to poisoning. "

"Officials also suggest that it is not uncommon to see record die-offs in these places; however they have never seen a number this high before."
