A line of lifeless egrets stretches for miles, and experts think they know what sent them all flying into cars. One expert thinks a fire about 15 minutes away could be to blame. Dozens of dead birds were littered along the side of I-75 in Lee County Monday after flocks of cattle egrets flew into cars on the highway. "The past few months we've questioned everything," Eddie Torres said. "You know, as far as possibly even moving out of the state because, you know, what are we doing to better the state? What are we doing to help control everything?" Red tide and blue-green algae are causing an unprecedented amount of death this year. Naturally, people were concerned about these dead cattle egrets spotted for miles along I-75 between Fort Myers and Naples.
