The mass deaths of approximately 300 wild birds along Mexico’s Pacific coast are likely attributed to El Niño. Warmer waters (due to El Nino) cause fish to swim deeper, making it harder for seabirds to find food, which could be a contributing factor to the bird deaths. Similar occurrences of dead seabirds were reported in Peru and Chile.
