Residents were left puzzled and horrified when they woke up to find more than 20 dead starlings strewn across their street.
The birds, which appeared to have fallen out of the sky around a powerline that runs through Sherborne Avenue, Netherton, were found in the morning by people living nearby.
One resident said: “It looks like they just fell out of the sky."
It's unclear what caused the deaths of the birds, and whether they fell from the sky or died while on the ground.
The macabre find comes a week after a similar event in North Wales, where more than 300 starlings were found dead on a country lane in Anglesey.
Speaking to the ECHO at the scene this afternoon, the Netherton resident said: “There’s plenty of cats around here so at least they’ll have a good day.
“I just want someone to move them because my son is touchy about things like this.”
Investigators found the Anglesey birds had died from trauma upon hitting the ground after becoming disoriented while flying as a group - a natural phenomena called a "murmuration."
A spokesperson for the RSPB, the UK's national bird charity, said: "It’s always concerning to see this happen."
"They had possibly been confused by strong sunlight reflected off wet ground."
According to the RSPB, the starling population in the UK has decreased by 66% in recent years, but it is currently unknown why numbers are dwindling.
Another resident of Sherborne Avenue said: “we usually see thousands of them on the powerlines.
“Every blue moon we get a dead pigeon that flies into the cable but nothing like this.
“I just want the council to remove them because there’s lots of kids on this road.”
Dead starlings could be seen from Sherborne Avenue to Fleetwood’s Lane by the river.
A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “Pur cleansing team are in the process of sending out a member of the team to inspect the area.”
