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.

Judge without knowing the facts often?
This was a family that hung out in an area half hour away from our cabin. Every time we'd be on our way home, we'd see them. No bird feeders involved. Just a two lane road in the middle of nowhere; also called God's Country.
And you think I'm really supposed to know they are in the road and run over there every time and chase them out. LMAO
You sure do have a lot of problems in God's Country. Maybe God is trying to tell you something?

You know how Bill and Hill met?
They were seeing the same girl.

The new Hillbilly Airport has the Monica Lewinsky Cigar Bar. I recommend you get the cigars in plastic wrappers, something "fishy"about the others.

And I could sure use those motorcyclists. Some idiot ran over a family of turkeys. The whole damn family with young ones we had been watching grow all summer! That driver needs to be taught a lesson.
Were the turkeys in the road? It my opinion that the driver taught those turkeys a lesson! I drove semi truck for years. I killed everything imaginable . Ran over lots of dogs, coyote, deer , opossum ,coon ect. I never swerved a bit. Im not taking a chance of having a wreck trying to miss some stupid animal. We installed a cow catcher grill on the semi so that hitting deer didn't damage it. There was a woman in a van that swerved to miss a turtle on the road. She lost control and overturned in a water filled ditch. She survived but several children drowned. If the Curmudgeon or someone like him had came by earlier and pancaked that turtle maybe they wouldn't have died. If we run over all the animals stupid enough to play in the road pretty soon only those with good genetics that avoided roads would be present. Here is a joke! why did the chicken cross the road? Answer to show the opossum & armadillo that it could be done.

God tells me you are very shallow and narrow-minded. Not everyone can live on Warriors little piece of property and live exactly as Warrior does.

I love it here! The politics might suck, but the weather is mild, the severe storms and natural disasters are few, the northern forests are beautiful, the changing seasons are spectacular, the creepy crawlers are almost non-existent, and the birding is GREAT!

I want to apologize to you then. I am sorry. I thought the constant bitching, moaning and whining about losing all of your freedoms at work and in public made you hate it there, it led me to believe that you didn't like it in your country. I am so confused about you foreigners. Please forgive me..

Yes, Arkansas hills are beautiful. So is West Texas..... Some big hills there too! It's different and beautiful in it's own way, and definitely not bare to a bird lover like me. I have traveled to West Texas many times for the sole purpose of finding birds, especially some nice rarities like the Montezuma Quail and Varied Bunting. Vegetation is diverse too.

I grew up in Eastern New Mexico right across from West Texas. I have been all over both states, while I grant it everyplace has it's own beauty I will also say that West Texas has much less beauty than most. It's actually ugly..

By your reasoning the woman and those kids were taught a lesson too!
You know, your ignorance is beyond words.

Like animals are supposed to know that roads are dangerous!- NOT. Roadsides are a place were many creatures find a reliable food source. Roads must be crossed to get to good food, shelter and nesting sites. Roads are a place where animals can traverse easily in winter because it's plowed for them.

Humans are supposed to be "intelligent." Unfortunately, most are not. Not only are they stupid, they are heartless and selfish.

Where do you get this "good genetics" crap???
Grandpappy teach you that? That is so outdated, so misguided and so wrong it's incredible people still believe that nonsense.

How do you get that an animal is "stupid" for hanging near a road, when the roadside vegetation offers the best foraging and cover? Unfortunately, it also offers danger that they have no way of knowing exists because fast moving cars and trucks are not found in nature, any more than windows and glass panes are.

Grow up already, okay?

You get the same scolding I just gave Churm!
I have avoided MANY animals. Never had to kill or hurt a person to do so either. It is our responsibility to take care to protect our resources and save lives whenever we can. All life is precious. If you don't think so, you cannot be human.
