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.

You hang out with people who have blatant disregard for the law? That's good to know.
Last week you were an ethical hunter. Today you announce your willingness to poach an unlimited number of protected species. I hear REAL hunters don't tolerate your kind.

"Birds don't plan."
Maybe they don't "plan" per se. But they definitely "analyze.

"They don't file a flight plan,"
Of course not. Who would they "file" it with?:)
I assume you meant to say "They don't follow a flight plan."
They DO have major migration routes that they follow. The Atlantic, the Mississippi, the Central and the Pacific Flyways are the major ones. They have been following coastlines, rivers and mountain ranges for eons, though high concentrations of them can show up anywhere during migration.

"they don't talk to each other"
Ummm, YES, they do! Birds are one of the most vocal creatures on earth. They sing to announce their territories and to attract a mate. They call to their mate just before arriving at the nest with food. They call out an alarm when a predator gets near. They call to keep in contact with others of their species in winter. When migrating at night (as most songbirds do) they give a totally different call called a night flight call to keep in contact with other migrants.

"and say hey we need to go this way at this time at this height."
Time is a factor in migration. An important one. And depending on weather conditions, they will adjust the height that they fly.

"You have a bird brain."
That is a compliment. Birds are extremely intelligent. More so than what you realize...... according to this post and that statement.

Warrior said this: "You got a BIRD PROBLEM? Let me know, me and a few friends will come up there WITH OUR SHOTGUNS and TAKE CARE of it."

He made no mention of hunting game birds, or legally shooting nuisance birds that are exempt from the protections of the MBTA.

Some folks could consider a Carolina Wren nesting in a clothes pole a "problem." Some might see a phoebe nesting on the porch light as a "problem." Others might see a Summer Tanager eating juniper berries as a "problem." Still others might see a Western Meadowlark on a fence post as a "problem." All protected species.

He has already admitted to shooting "thousands of sparrows (exact species unknown) and meadowlarks." He even claimed to be proud that he is such a great killer.

Therefore, Warrior's statement.... when combined with other known facts.... can only lead someone to one conclusion:
He hangs out with people who have blatant disregard for the law., AND he has announced his willingness to poach an unlimited number of protected species.

Like I said, REAL hunters don't tolerate this behavior.

You truly are an IDIOT! Do you have a reading comprehension problem? I didn't say anything about breaking any law. You have NO IDEA what the definition of POACHING is do you? I hear REAL bird watchers are smarter than you! Why do you want to take the FREEDOM of hunting away from people? After all you are big on freedoms right?

LMAO! Name one protected species I poached. YOU CAN'T! Just like you can't name one freedom you have lost. I made no mention of hunting anything illegally but just like a typical LIBERAL you jump to conclusions without gathering any facts!

Definition of Poaching:
1.Cook (an egg), without its shell, in or over boiling water.
2.Illegally hunt or catch (game or fish) on land that is not one's own or is under official protection.
Just like a typical lib twisting my words to make them mean something they don't. Where did I say I wanted to take away the freedom to hunt?

You have already admitted to poaching. Have a bad memory? Let me refresh it for you;
"thousands of sparrows and meadowlarks."
You do know that meadowlarks are protected under the MBTA, are you not? As are MOST sparrows. The ONLY sparrow that is not protected under the MBTA is the House Sparrow (the non-native English Sparrow that can be found almost everywhere there are humans and buildings.)
ALL the other sparrows ARE protected. Here are some of the ones you most likely killed "illegally."

Listen you stupid lib, post where I have admitted to poaching! I have told you on 3 seperate occassions that I was around 10 years old when I killed sparrows and meadowlarks. Now tell me genius were those birds protected when I was 10 years old? Stop lying. You have no idea what in the hell you are talking about. You should learn about nature first before you take up a cause you know nothing about. I have no regrets for killing anything, never have never will!

I have better things to do than to search posts from two weeks ago to find your exact words. But I remember even Old Army telling you that killing those birds was nothing to be bragging about.

"Now tell me genius were those birds protected when I was 10 years old?"
Why yes. Yes, they were. Unless you are older than 104 years old.

"Stop lying."
Post proof that I have lied about anything.

"You should learn about nature first before you take up a cause you know nothing about."
I can assure you, when it comes to birds, I damn well DO know what I'm talking about.

Boy, you are a defensive one!
