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.

<quoted text> Gas does indeed rise. That is why a party balloon filled with gas floats. that is why the canary in the coal mine was placed near the celing. Methane floats until it cools or dissipates. A catfish can live in water where no other fish could live. take a drum out of the water and it will die in minutes. a catfish can live out of water for several hours. and it only happened on news years the one time. You must have a vested interest in the gas industry?
That's where you are wrong, it happened the next new years also, I'm from Beebe. http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/01/us/arkansas-bir...

And no, I don't have a vested interest in gas industry, just know what a crazy idea it is that gas traveled 10 miles and dropped on a town, 2 times on New years and killed the birds. You must be someone that didn't get gas rights, and is mad about it.

Also, on gas density, Helium balloons rise, Hydrogen balloons do not, natural gas rise and falls depends on temp. If it is hot outside it will rise, if it is cold outside it will drop. New Years it was cold.

Hydrogen and helium are the most commonly used lift gases. Although helium is twice as heavy as (diatomic) hydrogen, they are both so much lighter than air that this difference is inconsequential. Hydrogen has about 8% more buoyancy than helium.[1]

In a practical dirigible design the difference is significant, making a 50% difference in the fuel carrying capacity of the dirigible and hence increasing its range significantly.[2]...

Helium has an advantage, however, in that combustion is impossible, whereas hydrogen is extremely flammable.(Wikipedia?) Why would a hydrogen balloon not rise? Derp much?

I just returned from a deer hunt where we took 3 mule deer, 3 turkey and 7 coyotes all in 5 days. I call that successful.
Yhea and Warrior killed them all with 00 buck Remington 870. If you believe that I got some ocean front property in Tularosa via la rosie.

Yes, they are pretty sure this is it, I live in the area. There is a wooded area in town, that the birds roost in every year. They think kids shot fireworks in their roost. And it got them flying, which they can't see at night and they started flying and running into buildings and trees. Then the next year at the same time on new years it happened again. So they are pretty certain that's what it was. The birds had no disease, no chemicals, only trauma from hitting things.

No; it's idiots riding too close that are the ones that cause accidents.
By your logic, I should run over a child if one runs out too.
