The quiet and obscure village of Jatinga in Assam, northeastern India is abuzz with birds during the monsoon season. Many of them practically fall from the sky, smashing themselves to death in the streets of Jatinga. The "suicides" always occur between 7 and 10 p.m. and only around a specific mile-long, 200-yard-wide strip of land. The process has gone on like clockwork for roughly the past 100 years. 44 species of migratory birds have been identified as part of the phenomenon.
