SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two birds were found dead on the beach in Sunset Cliffs Thursday.
Two birds, called grebes, were positioned by beer cans with some kind of writing in the sand around their bodies. Two surfers who discovered the birds say they first suspected foul play.
"Never seen birds like this here, with writing and stuff… it seems kinda creepy," a surfer said.
Fish and wildlife officials sent an investigator, who determined the birds did die naturally. They also say they believe there is no correlation between the strange writing and the birds.
