The Place of Suicidal Birds in Jatinga, Assam,INDIA



An otherwise quaint and picturesque little village in Assam, Jatinga experiences a bizarre, yet sad phenomenon every monsoon.


  • The Mystery: During dark and foggy nights in monsoons, migratory birds flying over the village, dive headlong into trees, buildings, poles, and what nots, crashing to death. Jatinga is one of those strange places to visit in India that turns into a land of mass bird suicide every year during September & October.

  • The Theory: Ornithologists say that the dense fog and high altitude daze birds because of which they end up crashing into trees and buildings. However, there are many arguments that counter this theory.
