CHARLOTTE, N.C.- In shocking video that may be difficult for some to watch, a Channel 9 viewer captured footage of hundreds of birds scattered across the ground near the entrance of the NASCAR Hall of Fame in uptown after flying into the side of the building.

Hollie Cameron's disturbing cellphone video shows dozens of birds lying on the ground outside the building, and captures other birds crashing into the large windows.

Channel 9 reporter Gina Esposito spoke with the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue, who said their rehab team responded to the NASCAR Hall of Fame around 11 p.m. and treated hundreds of birds.

They said a total of 310 birds hit the windows of the building. Roughly one-third of those birds were dead when they arrived, and another third was seriously injured.

The rest appeared to be stunned but will be OK, the organization said.
