FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Fairfax County police say animal control officers are investigating the death of roughly two dozen birds near Avion Parkway and Lee Jackson Memorial Highway.

Police say the officers began investigating Friday, and have determined that the birds are European starlings, and there is no apparent cause of death.

The officers collected the birds and sent them to a laboratory for testing. Police say the Animal Services Division is working with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries to determine the cause of death.
