BEEBE, Ark. Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area.

I'm quite sure birds are already there. I think you mean, "It won't be long until the neotropical migrants arrive."

They will arrive in your area before they get here. Some birds have already arrived, but the long-distance travelers are yet to come. They will be landing along the Gulf Coast (and working their way up the Texas coast) in huge waves in the next few weeks!(Some stragglers are already showing up.) It's SOOO exciting down there in April! I wish I was going, but it doesn't look too promising this year.

The real bird action will begin here in late April and only last for three weeks or so. The males in particular are in a hurry to get on the best territories they can and attract a mate. The females are a little later to arrive and they pick the best territory to raise young, and the male that goes along with it.
The best thing is the birds will all be in fresh breeding plumage and absolutely beautiful AND singing!

Check out these beauties!

No, we don't have one bird of any kind on my place. I don't see one bird anywhere in town or out in the country they haven't arrived yet!

Nonsense. No matter where you go, there are birds. I could easily find them at your place and in your town.

I am at the cabin and it seems my grouse has found himself some ladies. He's fanning his tail and ruffling his neck feathers standing guard and courting while the girls eat.

This is going to be a great weekend. Low 50's up here tomorrow.

No birds anywhere around here. The local newspaper headlines say: Where are the birds! Nobody can find one bird in this area. It's strange!

The USDA had admitted to doing this in several locations around the country now. There is an article out detailing all the crap the USDA has done in the last few years.
They have also admitted to approving a pesticide that kills bees.

The government does a lot of weird testing all over. But to kill the bees would be a very bad thing for bees keep too many things pollenated and growing. Killing off the bees would be a big step in the destruction of the world.
The bees would probably object also!
