They have killed the birds! And now they're going to kill me!
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!
(Not like the original lines, but similar at least)
Don't worry, when war comes around we'll just dump a bunch of barbed wire everywhere and catch him on his hugely impractical armor.
What's next? A volcano? Lol.
Huh. I figured when the Horsemen came it'd be a bit more... worldwide. Apparently it's just Arkansas.
we already have famine and war
come at me death
It was the end of some birds..
it would be interesting to see people falling from the sky too
logic: large water supply for the animals had a toxin put into it somehow
These bird and fish thread are getting as annoying as the justin beaver threads, and they're all about animals too, I see a pattern.

But every single one was dead. Logically if it was a fall there MIIIGHHTTTT have been one or two survivors. Or half-dead ones. But no, these are all dead if I'm not mistaken.[/QUOTE]
well if they survived wouldnt they have flown away????
[QUOTE=Someguy13;27199041][QUOTE=Ama-zake;27152372]Meanwhile in Louisiana
Guys.. You do know that Australia has figured out why that happens...
If they say things like fireworks or lightning is to blame, why is it ONLY blackbirds, no other birds.
There should be a rule against dumb scare mongering articles.
I hope it's not a some disease, I live in Louisiana... :ohdear:
Guys. The world didn't end on 1000. It didn't end on 1999. It also didn't end on 2001. AND 2006. SO WHY THE FUCK WILL IT END ON 2012?
Humanity needs these "world will end theories", but guys, [B]they ran out of fucking space on their calendar.[/B]
there's no fucking way 5000 birds would drop dead due to fireworks. it's a small ass town, you'd seriously need Disney and hundreds of thousands of other people to be shooting in that town all at once to do all that damage.

A survey conducted by the Federation of Fishermen’s Colony of Paraná, Paranaguá on the coast of the state, indicates that at least 100 tons of fish (sardine, croaker and catfish) have turned up dead since last Thursday off the coast of Parana.
On Sunday, representatives from the Environmental Institute of Paraná (IAP), the Secretary of State for the Environment and Water Resources (SEMA), took samples to verify the reason for the deaths. O relatório será divulgado hoje. The report will be released today.
The president of the Federation of Fishermen’s Colony of Parana, Edmir Manoel Ferreira, reports that between Paranaguá and Guaraqueçaba at least 2,800 fishermen depend on the daily seafood.[/quote] Only one community came to bury 15 tons.

Scientists still don’t know what’s causing flocks of birds to drop from the sky in the South, even as several hundred more fell dead onto a Louisiana highway.
The puzzling phenomenon started on New Year’s Eve when thousands of blackbirds were found dead in central Arkansas. Townsfolk spent their holiday weekend removing the remains of between 4,000 and 5,000 dead red-winged blackbirds. Scientists have descended on the town, trying to find a cause for the mass die-off.
In the latest incident early this week, some 500 birds were discovered scattered on a rural road in Louisiana's Pointe Coupee Parish, 300 miles south of the Arkansas site. Officials there are stumped as to what caused the birds to plunge to their death.
Wildlife officials in both states were sending carcasses to researchers at the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wis., and the University of Georgia. No one is yet connecting the two mass deaths, but the Audubon Society is closely monitoring the situation.
“Mass bird die-offs can be caused by starvation, storms, disease, pesticides, collisions with manmade structures or human disturbance,” says Greg Butcher, Audubon’s director of bird conservation. “Scientists are still investigating what happened to the birds in Louisiana and Arkansas, but initial findings indicate that these are isolated incidents that were probably caused by disturbance and disorientation.”
The birds that died –- red-winged blackbirds, common grackles, brown-headed cowbirds and European starlings –- are abundant species that flock together in large nighttime roosts during the winter months. Roosts can contain from tens of thousands to 20 million individuals or more, according to Audubon.
The U.S. Geological Service's website lists about 90 mass deaths of birds and other wildlife from June through Dec. 12. Five list deaths of at least 1,000 birds and another 12 show at least 500 dead birds.
The largest was near Houston, Minn., where about 4,000 water birds died between Sept. 6 and Nov. 26 from infestations of various parasites.
Red-winged blackbirds are among North America's most abundant birds, with somewhere between 100 million and 200 million nationwide, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, N.Y.
