JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Neighbors in the Cedarbrook community are concerned about unusual brown stuff they said has been falling on their cars and driveways.

They said it’s very bizarre and they’ve never seen anything like it.

They sent photos and videos to News4Jax hoping someone could help identify whatever it is that’s been accumulating on their property.

The neighborhood is off Cedar Point Road, not far from William F. Sheffield Regional Park.

They said the weird phenomenon began Saturday and kept happening all day.

Several of them washed off their cars more than once and the brown stuff kept accumulating.

They said it was falling on sidewalks, walkways, plants, even people who were out sunbathing.

“I think a bird,” said Stephanie Smith, a resident. “It’s probably from a bird.”

Attempts to reach the Florida Wildlife Commission, Florida Forestry, and Jacksonville City Council member for District 2 weren’t immediately successful.

Some theories from neighbors include, bees, human feces from a plane, lizard poop, and the recent trip to Mars.

“They’re kind of hard to get off too,” Smith said.

One neighbor was seen power washing his car.
