    My mom and dad told me that many of the black birds that have been roosting in Beebe died off last night. My dad said that he was driving down Center st. this morning and there were dead black birds everywhere. I have heard that some areas the ground was completely covered. My mom said that she saw people from the local police, county sherrif, state police and health department stirring around investigating.

    How could someone poison that many black birds and do it in the middle of the night?

    Wow....That's interesting. Would have to be some sort of poisoning. Keep us posted on what you find out.

    Yep, real possibility with that many dying all at once! The thing with Blackbirds is they will roost in one location & might fly many, many miles everyday to specific feeding area and may have found some bad groceries. Hope it is not Furidane that someone pyt out where they could get it that got them, if it was that stuff kills 3 or 4 times down the food chain.

    My Dad was Hazen's City Manager before he passed. I use to go out at night and shoot M-60s in the air with him. We also use to mix up a poison and grease. I would climb trees and up building to spread this stuff out. Now that was 15 or 16 years ago. It may be that is still being used. Just a thought.


    We also blow beaver dams. Man, that was fun.:wink:

    Not this many and not spread out over at least a mile.

    Honestly who cares about the blackbirds? Except the fact that the dead are laying everywhere. That sucks

    This would be my guess as well. Prolly a group of greys. They're mean little suckers.

    Another option would be that they were killed in the prop wash from the rotors of the black helicopters that were releasing them after being implanted with super secret chip technology taken from Roswell to bring us all under total government control to make it much easier for China to invade and steal our brains.

    I'm also sure that Big Foot had a part in all of this.

    Bird Flu is back. Hope it isn't a strain that we humans can contact.

    Still think the vampire option is pretty close.
