Default 1000 Blackbirds Fall Dead

1,000 Blackbirds Fall From Sky In Arkansas

(NewsCore) - Arkansas officials were investigating Saturday after nearly 1,000 dead blackbirds fell out of the sky on New Year’s Eve, KTVH-TV in Little Rock reported.

Officers with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) arrived on the scene in Beebe, Ark. around 11:30pm local time and found bodies of the birds scattered over a 1-mile (1.6km) area, the report said.

Robby King, an AGFC officer, collected over 60 bird bodies that will be analyzed in a lab.

It was not immediately clear what caused the deaths, but AGFC ornithologist Karen Rowe hypothesized that the birds may have been hit by high-altitude lightning or hail, the report said.

Rowe also speculated that the New Year’s Eve revelers may have ignited fireworks, startling the flock and resulting in death from stress.

Officials were working to complete the cleanup of bird bodies scattered across rooftops and yards.
Pretty spooky. O_o

I can buy the stress part. Birds have a heart rate that's high enough as it is.

^But all of them at the same place and time?

Something's not right.

O.O
The strange thing is that I just saw the movie Magnolia, finished ten minutes ago, and in the end of that movie, frogs fall from the sky... Weird coincidence!
However, the motto of the movie is that there are no coinidences, if things seem they are connected, even if it seems strange, they are almost certainly connected...
Excuse me while my mind explodes.

Creepy.

That is:


Wait for it...

As I said in another post. 2012 isn't the problem. That's the END of the trouble. It's 11-11-11 you need to worry about. The fecal matter will hit the oscillating device at that time culminating in the death of mankind on 12-12-12.



Well it's as plausible as 12-12-12 isn't it?



The birds dieing at once is creepy, though. In MA last year we had multiple whale beachings. Seems much more common lately than I ever remember being reported or occurring.



EDIT: Wasn't there a horror movie where a bunch of birds fell out of the sky? It wasn't the main thrust of the movie, but a peripheral experience indicating the presence of something evil near bye.
