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.

Get together and do what? Hunt coyotes? No thanks. Not my idea of a good time.
BTW, I hear he'll be working closely with your wife.
After 28 years together if he can work close with her and not kill her than my hat off to him! Maybe we can watch some birds from a blind or something. I'm game!

Starlings are not native ANYWHERE in the U. S. Nor do they migrate at all...that I am aware. Some may, but I have never seen them migrating in any kind of numbers like some other species I have monitored. And they are found in huge numbers all over the north in winter. Unfortunately, it was not starlings that suffered the brunt of the fireworks incident. It was our NATIVE Red-winged Blackbirds, and likely some grackles, whom they tend to associate with, that did.

Raptor is correct its both partys that caused the manufacturing jobs to be redistributed to other places. And im of the opinion that it was done on purpose. The UN &NWO deterined that when viewed from a world standpoint the US middle cas had more than their so called fair share. So nafta pollution laws workplace laws (like Obama care) where put in place to redistribute the middle class jobs to other places. those political parasites from both partys firs fill their own ockets anf then endorse & furthur the UN & NWO agenda. Why we let 535 elected parasites do this is hard to comprehend. I suppose because many folks want to vote themselves money from the public coffers.

Where do you live and why would you want to kill one? Would you eat it?
I've taught my sons not to kill something unless it is good eating or is a danger to them or livestock.
