    Over the weekend in arkansas 1000's of birds dropped from the sky and died over a town!! Not one day later and 125 miles away almost 80,000 to 100,000 fish die in the arkansas river!! In both cases they were almost all the same species!!

    Also just read msn today and another mass bird death happened in Lousianna today!! About 500 birds died again!! Is this not insane or what!!

    AND!! They still have no clue as to what happened!!

    I hate to hear that news. Here at the beach, they are finding dead pelicans that have been decapitated on purpose!! How sick is that??? I sometimes get so sick over what people will do that I turn everything off and leave the newspaper in the bin.

    I can maybe see this in the first incident since it was on new years eve but what about the others!! Just seems very strange that it happened not once but three times in a very short time span!!

    This happened in Illinois a couple of years ago. There were lots of theories but no concrete answers.

    I certainly DO NOT think it was fireworks - only in AR?

    Sounds strange. I wonder if they're somehow related.

    yes, 5,000 dead birds fell from the sky on new year's eve in the midnight hours. RedWinged black birds, and starlings. Birds flying in the dark? I listened to an interview with a woman whose neighborhood was filled with these poor creatures, and she said there were no fireworks going off in her neighborhood. It's truly a mystery...

    You all may think I'm nuts but I don't get the paper anymore.
    I am hyper to begin with and I can't stand reading the awful stuff going on. My son lives and works in DC so I get all my info from him or on the internet but I choose what I want to read :)

    I'm not a new hungry person either, but since i'm so close to arkansas I've been hearing it on the radio and seeing it on msn!! The truth is that we will probably never know what happened!!

    Have read about that in our newspapers. It surely is a weird phenomonem(?) They are saying it was the fireworks or a thunderstorm, is that right?

    We have a problem at this time of the year with dolphins beaching themselves. Just saved a pod of about 12 but a mum and baby died on the beach :( so sad.

    It was a farmer who poisoned the birds and then it got into the water. It's not a big mystery. Chalk it up to imaginations run wild when there is a feasible explanation.

    If that was the case I don't understand why the birds would all drop from the sky at the same time. Wouldn't they die slowly depending on when and how much they ate?

    I don't believe it, either. Fireworks??? Do the birds fly at night??? Most fireworks happen during the night. And when you consider the # of fireworks -- the BIG ones -- that have been going on for over 60 yrs that I know of and we've NEVER seen this. There's something else happening.

    And they DID say the birds have been tested (I'm sure not all of them) and they found no poisons.
