The five-minute clip sees the local pick up up to a dozen birds who appear to have flown into the glass panels on the road to Ojen, near Marbella.
The wall of glass panels is believed to have been erected to cancel out traffic for a nearby urbanisation.
“This, ladies and gentlemen, is a real shame. Look at the poor birds. How barbaric,” the unnamed cyclist says in the video.
“Look with its babies by its side, my god,” he adds through what sounds like tears.
He then calls on the mayor of Ojen to ‘come here and look at what is happening in your town, the assassination of birds because of this glass screen.’
Several people commenting on the video said they have already filed denuncias with Seprona – the animal welfare arm of the Guardia Civil.
The clip has been shared almost 8,000 times.
Mayor of Ojen Jose Antonio Gomez Sanchez said today: “When the town hall realised this could be a problem we asked the developers to install poultry protection devices.
“They agreed without problems.
“It seems that there has been a delay in installing these, but they have told me that they will begin installing such measures tomorrow.”
