I've read of things like this before. There are sooooo many reasons why this could have happened. At least they are taking precautions with the hazmat suits and I would hope they are going to test for bird flu. I've heard of flocks eating bad berries and getting drunk or poisoned. Also heard of trauma to flocks. The thing with this story is this:

There are a variety of dead black birds, mostly red winged and a duck was also found.


Wonder what happened to the duck. How did that one get into the mix? :?

We'll probably never hear what happened to them. It really is a 'weird' thing, but not quite a 'disaster'.

Dead fish have also been found. An Arkansas Game and Fish Commission spokesman says dead drum fish now cover a 20-mile section of the Arkansas River near Ozark.

Red winged blackbirds are particularly common around wetlands, so there's a common connection with fish and ducks, ie, something in the water.

Strange, I posted something, but it didn't show up.

Anyway, there have been many small earthquakes in Arkansas for the past months, and some speculate it could be because of the deep fracture natural gas extraction process. There is some thought that the stuff they put in the ground is both toxic and changing the pressure of the geology down there, thus causing the earthquakes.

Beings that there are fish and water birds involved, there could have been a small tremor that released toxic something or other which killed fish and some birds, and frightened away and sickened the remaining birds. Then, they fell from the sky after the adrenaline of fright wore off and the chemicals overcame them.

Just a guess. My previous post was better, but it is lot. Oh, well.

Keep us posted, please.

They are saying it could be because of lightening activity or a high altitude hail storm. Fact is, they don't know yet.

TaffyJ, sometimes I have posts not show up because I accidentally hit the "Full Editor" button instead of the submit button. Sometimes I don't notice it and move on without submitting the post and it doesn't show up.
There won't be a declared "SHTF" day so be prepared.

Thanks, Atreus.

I'm kinda skeptical about the altitude, fireworks, and lightening theories. I didn't think ducks and blackbirds were high altitude flyers normally, to get way up there with upper atmosphere hail. I may be wrong, as I don't know a whole lot about ducks and blackbirds.

Enough fireworks to kill a mile of birds, in the daylight? Everybody knows you save the big fireworks for the night time.

Lightening might get some birds, but once again, a mile of them? Not likely.

It is a freaky incident, but probaby not harmful in general unless it starts happening more often.

Now also in Louisiana
http://www.2theadvocate.com/news/112843019.html

"LABARRE — Hundreds of dead and dying birds littered a quarter-mile stretch of highway in Pointe Coupee Parish on Monday as motorists drove over and around them.
State biologists are trying to determine what led to the deaths of the estimated 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings on La. 1 just down the road from Pointe Coupee Central High School."



Forgot to include the long term decline of US bumblebee (native vs non-native honey bee).

Just heard that they are saying that these birds were traumatized and the organs failed? or Burst.. Is that the real story? I wish the wife let me know where she heard that.. But she said the source stated that when the did the autopsy that is what they found..

For the Arkansas ones yes that is the case, BUT it was due to their impact with the ground and or buildings...not the cause of them falling out of the sky...or supposedly flying into the ground due to mass panic.

Also heard of similar events in KY....

Cityhomesteader, The Huffington Post is reporting that the initial autopsies on the Arkansas birds showed that they "suffered internal injuries that formed deadly blood clots." Not sure if that's what your wife saw or not.
