    More Than 1,000 Dead Birds Fall From Arkansas Sky

    Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm!?!

    http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/...-fall-ark-sky/

    The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile (2-kilometer) area, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area.

    Something weird is brewing in Arkansas. They've also had almost 500 earthquakes in the past few months; compared to 39 in 2009.

    http://articles.cnn.com/2010-12-13/u...-town?_s=PM:US

    There is a fault in Missouri (right near the Arkansas border) that caused the 1812 New Madrid Earthquake. It was felt over 1000 miles away:

    http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak.../1811-1812.php

    They also have Hot Springs National Park and a hot spring is defined as, "a thermal spring having water warmer than 98°F (37°C): the water is usually heated by emanation from or passage near hot or molten rock."

    Crater of Diamond State Park is situated over an eroded lamproite volcanic pipe.

    I've marked all of the places I've mentioned on a map:

    (I'm not sure if the dead birds are connected to everything else. They are represented by the letter "E" in the map and if you take out E, you can see that the remaining letters form a line)

    I think we should all prepare for a "flashforward."
    If the show were still on, I would suspect some type of publicity stunt.

    I think the natural world has been suffering a lot of disasterous calamities of late, I think there are more to come.

    Mother nature is PO'd and I don't think its done. MOO

    That would freak me out if 1000s of birds just started dropping out of the sky dead.

    Yes, would definately freak me out, I wouldn't mind so much the fifty or so that perch in my tree that somehow are able to poop all over my car. I know it sounds cruel but those darn birds. I have tried everything, fake owls that their little fake heads spin, threw a couple of rubber snakes on the roof to scare the birds and you know what those birds did? They pooped on the owls heads!

    this is really interesting, now I want to dig into this.


    pooped on the owl? I had a 94 Firebird. green...no matter where I parked it, the birds would find it. It actually entered my mind on day to cut the electric wires that crossed over our driveway. I was getting insane.

    Ha Ha, owls and snakes and poop oh my!!

    We have a big tree in front of the house. I try to park 'away' from it, but the darn birds get me good. I do think it's odd that this many birds died at the same time, and I don't think it's stress. The evening NY news said that they think the birds were stressed due to the weather.

    Maybe there's a leak of some kind, the respiratory system on a bird is tiny.
    May you dream you are dreaming in a warm soft bed
    and the voices inside you that fill you with dread
    make the sounds of thousands of angels instead
    tonight where you might be laying your head.
    I wish you well.

    Respectfully snipped. I think you're on to something here, and in my opinion it's worth more than the ho-hum response it's gotten from the MSM.

    Arkansas game officials probe mystery of falling birds

    Karen Rowe, an ornithologist for the commission, said the incident is not that unusual and is often caused by a lightning strike or high-altitude hail.

    A strong storm system moved through the state earlier in the day Friday.

    Officials also speculated that fireworks shot by New Year's revelers in the area might have caused severe stress in the birds. Rowe said Sunday there was evidence that large fireworks may have played a role.

    Biologists believe the deaths were stress-related from either fireworks or weather, Stephens said.

    "Since it only involved a flock of blackbirds and only involved them falling out of the sky, it is unlikely they were poisoned, but a necropsy is the only way to determine if the birds died from trauma or toxin," Rowe said.

    There have been plenty of bird falls like this over the years. It kind of reminds me of the quail falling in the Old Testament.

    Not only birds, but supposedly 100,000 fish have died in Arkansas too.

    Do those type black birds usually fly in large flocks? If they're the same birds as here in Texas it's hard to think of 1,000's of them getting so stressed that they die in the air and fall. Usually they will come right up near people and hang around dogs, people, and parking lots.
