Description
For one small Arkansas town, New Year's Eve 2010 brought a media frenzy and unwelcome prophesies of the apocalypse. The mysterious deaths of 5000 blackbirds, which plummeted from the night sky, led to 12 months of intrigue and a National Geographic documentary. As December 31, 2011 approached, the residents of Beebe were understandably apprehensive - then it started happening again. Just as the town's New Year's Eve parties were getting under way, birds began falling out of the sky. Police said calls started soon after 7pm, and a local TV station reported that scores of birds were raining down. Jacob Landrum told Arkansas' KTHV television he had been driving through the middle of town towards the Church of Christ when the falling birds startled him. "The birds were all over the parking lot and in the road on the way here," he said.

"It's kind of a strange thing two years in a row." One of the favoured theories from last year's avian catastrophe centred on fireworks. Some animal behaviourists suggested the loud noises and bright lights of several large displays marking the new year may have startled and disoriented the birds. As soon as reports came in that birds were plummeting to their deaths once again, Beebe police department imposed an impromptu ban on fireworks. The six or seven officers on duty leapt into their patrol cars and toured the town interrupting parties and looking for Catherine wheels and rockets. "They just had to stop people shooting any more off," said Jeremy Weeks, a police officer in Beebe, although he confessed it was unclear whether the pyrotechnic ban had helped. "I have absolutely no idea why it happened again," he said. "I saw dozens of them on the ground as I was driving into work."

Paul Begley, a pastor at the Community Gospel Bapist Church in Indiana, had his own theory. "I was doing a live broadcast talking about bible prophecy and the end of the world," he said. "And the birds started falling out of the sky again. Where's (horror blockbuster writer) Stephen King? He can't even write a script like this, this is God. "It's not fireworks. If that was the case, on the Fourth of July every bird would fall out of the sky." It is unknown exactly how many birds died this year as the clean-up operation is still under way, but Horace Taylor, Beebe's animal control officer, said his office had picked up at least 80 dead blackbirds. Post-mortem examinations carried out by the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission last year revealed "acute physical trauma" in samples of the dead blackbirds, which suggests they were killed on impact with the ground rather than dying in mid-air. No sign of poison or disease was found as theories continue to abound on the mass fatality events. Kevin McKinney, a Beebe resident, claimed something else must have been happening on Saturday night. "Fireworks going off all night and all day - no problems!" he told KTHV. "But when the birds started dying, I had my compass out: it went crazy, spinning and unable to find north."

Farmers kids shoot them in the sunflower fields around here when they don't have "boomers" (propane explosions to scare them, doesn't work all to well).


We need to figure out how to market this mass slaughter of black birds and sell it to the farmers.

Bizarre...

Dead Dolphins and Birds Are Causing Alarm in Peru

At least 877 dolphins and more than 1,500 birds, most of them brown pelicans and boobies, have died since the government began tracking the deaths in February, the Environment Ministry said last week.

Don't know if this is a conspiracy site or not, so looked up the USDA data and it matches. Interesting.
