    So any ideas what caused the birds to drop dead in BeBe? This is very strange. The news station mentioned fireworks, but I am not the least bit convinced on that theory.

    Too many threads on dead blackbirds will kill more blackbirds.

    100's of thousands of blackbirds spooked out of a roost around midnight might make for some dangerous flying conditions. I say truama from mid-air collisions.

    Trauma...fireworks...bull:censored: all over a 1 mile area.

    This is clearly an alien event.

    83000 dead fish. Sister event. Could possibly be related to Hell's Half Acre.
  5. I dont think the news is telling us everything. I have never heard of this many birds being scared to death in one place and now down south in LA and the dead fish at the same time. It must have been the sonic boom from a space craft or maybe the condensate trail from that jet that was near San Diego California about a month ago. Either way it could have a ripple effect on other animals.

    I heard today a meterologist say that with the weather fronts we had moving thru, could have and more then likly caused the birds to caught in a strong updrafts and the expired due to high altitudes and then as the front weakened the birds were simply dropped. He also went on to say that this is very common to happen and the front movement and direction supports his theory. Sounds like the best explaination yet.

    I think that they all flew into the side of Wonder Woman's airplane and that is what caused the trama.

    No not 100's of thousands. Millions roost in that area. I tend to agree with you on this. That is what I have been saying all along.

    Those Mcdonalds post are funny,but seriously I really think this is a Bigfoot tactic for gathering lots of food at one time to prepare for coming cold weather. Basically bigfoot gets all wound up on some stink weed and finds a large concentration of animals(flock of birds school of fish etc) and proceeds to pass gas thus knocking the animals into a coma like state. So that the gathering is easy and the meat doesn't waste. Now I know you say "but in Beebe?' well some of the guys in the jeep cherokee that were eating beef jerky gave him a ride there and dropped him off

    If this violent storm updraft would have happened in the Arkansas River bottoms, we could confirm the existence of the Ivory Billed Woodpecker.
