    NOKESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Prince William County police say dozens of blackbirds were found dead along a Nokesville road and authorities are investigating the cause.
 
     The birds were found near the intersection of Aden Road and Fitzwater Drive on Thursday afternoon.
 
     Officer Jonathan Perok, a county police spokesman, estimates that fewer than 100 birds were found. He says a Virginia Department of Transportation crew cleaned up the birds. 
 
     Perok says the birds may have gotten into a poison or been caught in a power line surge. He says animal control officers don't believe there is any threat to the public, but a few carcasses were sent out for testing.
