More than 1,000 dead birds fall from sky in Ark

Jan 2, 2011 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: news.yahoo.com

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.

Any way at least we are having better weather than the Texas & Oklahoma panhandle.Their having record snow. Im ready for green up Im running low of hay. If I had not sold over half of my cattle I would already be out of hay. I culled all the old cows and just kept the best ones.
It's nice here. We will probably be in the mid 50's today. I am about to get outside and enjoy it.

I bet you are correct.

I will take a wild guess with some of the clues you've given. You have an eight year old. You claim to be "retired" (from the military or some other government job, I presume.) I come to this conclusion by your statement that you have been around the world and "keeping us safe." I would put your age somewhere between 41 and 46. Since you remember shows like Bonanza, I would tend to lean towards the higher number of 46. Maybe 45.

But I just may be a little older and wiser.:)

It's currently snowing cats, dogs, coyotes and blackbirds. Started around 2:00 as sleet. They're calling for 8-12 inches here tonight. I was gone all day, so I didn't see what kinds of clues the birds were giving as to what's coming. I'm just hoping to get back to the cabin this weekend and continue my hunt for the little owl. I almost had him in my sights Saturday night while he was calling, until some snowmobilers came by and scared him.

I took the trash this afternoon and then did some things around the house because it was like a nice spring day and now all of a sudden the wind is blowing like hell and the temperature has dropped and something fierce is blowing in from the north. I hope it's rain.

I'd say I was purty darn close to your age! I should have been a detective.
You are correct again in that I am not older than 51.:)

Our current weather is blowing in from the south....and it's totally cool! Bring on the snow! I ALWAYS welcome whatever Mother Nature has in store!(unless it's really dangerous like high winds or a tornado). I've been known to don my waterproof apparel and head to the nature center in pouring down rain simply to enjoy a nice, peaceful walk while the rest of the human race waits it out indoors.

Lately, I've spent the weekends sitting outside in the brutal cold with the hopes of capturing my Ruffed Grouse on digital media.(I'm so glad I don't have to say "film" anymore!) BTW, have you seen my grouse photos yet? I have been enjoying the snow and cold immensely this year. I don't look forward to the end of winter. I'm having too much fun. But I am getting a little excited about the tropical birds returning. Warblers will start arriving along the Gulf Coast in just a few weeks. The first Blackbirds will be here by next week. I just hope this summer isn't as hot and humid as last summer.

It's currently 41 and clear here. No wind yet. High today is supposed to be 51, looks like a good day to look for arrow heads. Or maybe hunt coyotes, NM yesterday shot down that silly bill that wouldn't allow coyote hunting contests anymore.

If people don't eat coyotes, there's no reason to hunt them. Hunting shouldn't be a competition. It should be for sustainence.

I kill coyotes because of the harm they do to the animals I do eat. A pack of coyotes can and do kill domestic livestock & wildlife. Ive either killed or driven coyotes from my area. I dont hear them or see their tracks. Good riddance.

Tell that to all the deer here who have been killed by coyotes. I suppose you are for the eating of house cats also then!

I have stated in the past that I support defending your animals from coyotes. I would defend my dogs in same manner. The only difference is I would not seek out coyotes to kill who aren't a threat and may never pose a threat.

Why do you pretend to show sympathy for the deer who are killed by coyotes, but not to the deer that are killed by you?
Why would I want to eat someones house cat?

Coyotes are a threat to the deer and elk populations. Bring your grouse to my house and a coyote would kill it within 2 days. How would that make you feel?

Too many deer are being killed by coyotes. I only kill deer who have matured, who have at least one forked antler. My family and friends eat those mature deer. We are not killing baby deer. There are coyotes everywhere you turn down here, even in town. Why do you pretend that you are an outdoors person who is concerned with the enviornment and all the animals yet you don't mind if the deer go extinct?
