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.

For the same reason we still talk about things that happened over 200 years ago.

Raptor Dont you just hate it that it is still a Republic and your wishes and thought,s cannott infringe on my counstitional rights. I still have a leagal right to trap and kill varmits like raccons ect. My poultry is more important to me than the life of some varmit.Those conibar body grip traps are very efficient.they very quickly squeeze the life out of anything that gets in them. I bet I could take some car leaf springs and other junk and build a human sized one. That what we need to have set on the border to catch the illegals!!!

Churm, Don't you just hate it every time you come across a dead animal in one of your traps when you go to remove it and all of the sudden you realize God is watching you and even if you hide behind a tree, he can still see you?

Don't you hate kmowing that somewhere a sweet, little innocent baby is waiting for their Mommy or Daddy to return with food, but won't because some uneducated (in some ways) human took it upon himself to end the parents life for some selfish or other unknown reason?

Don't you hate that fleeting thought that what you think are "varmints" are just as much God's creatures as we are?

Don't you just hate the fact that the Constitution says nothing about having the right to kill what we want, when we want for whatever reason we want?

I'll tell you what, when I get my book done, I'll give you a free copy just because. It's a story about Spike, the raccoon that has been living in my yard and raising her babies there for several years now. This years' young one is the sweetest thing........Just the other morning right before daylight, I was outside filling up the jelly feeders for the orioles, when I heard rustling in the brush. Out walks this young raccoon, about teenager size. Anyway, this innocent little thing walks slowly towards me to within about eight feet and then stands up on his/her hind legs like a dog would do that begs. It's scrawny arms reaching out to me as if to say, "Can I have some of that, please?"

I knew that once I headed off to work, that Spike's kid would get the jelly and not the orioles. That's okay. I have other jelly feeders with baffles that raccoons and squirrels can't get to. There is enough to go around.

I look at it this way; If I put food outside, it's fair game for anything that eats. I won't stress myself out over trying to only feed my favorite things. God gave each creature the same right to try to survive and I can't overrule God.

If I don't want an animal to eat something, I don't put it outside where they can get to it. It's a simple no kill solution.

Notice I said uneducated (in some ways.) In other ways you seem very intelligent. I bet you are one interesting dude!

The other day I was driving down I75 when I noticed a big bird flying above. I tried to make a positive ID on the bird, but at 75 mph, it's a little difficult. When I looked up at it, it let loose a big one. I could see it fall. Then my eyes went back to the bird for the id and all of the sudden, SPLAT!....four huge spots on my windshield and two more on my hood. I wonder if birds can be identified by poop alone.
