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.

I need six for six coyotes for the deer population here to survive. I need that many almost daily. The birds I killed when I was a kid, less than 10 years of age. I did not put a dent in their population. I don't know how many birds you currently feed but I feed well over 100 daily!

Maybe you should consider giving up farming. You'd enjoy the wildlife SO MUCH MORE!!
Ive noticed people are quite fond of telling others what they ought to do. When the only person who has that right is the person themselves. you dont know what I enjoy. I can have a good evenings extertainment With a six pack of beer & watching the bug zapper. I enjoy farming I dont make very much but I enjoy my livestock. I could go the rest of my days without hearing or seeing another coyote.

Congratulations. Most predators of common sense do not eliminate a food source and they only kill what they need to survive.
Predators dont have common sense. Predators increase in times of plenty and decrease from starvation in lean times.

Did I say hundreds? Sorry, it was more like thousands. Maybe in the morning I will break out that old Daisy Red Rider and see if I can still shoot them like I did when I was a kid. I bet it is still fun!

You can actually count them? I CAN tell you this; I have probaly well over 100 Goldfinches I feed every day. Then there is (currently) House and Purple Finches, White and Red breasted Nuthatches, Titmice, Chickadees, Cardinals, Mourning Doves, Downy, Hairy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Common Grackles, House Sparrows, etc.... That's just today. That doesn't even touch on the birds I get in the summer, during migration and in winter. Some are yet to arrive.(Juncos, Pine Siskens, White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows) Some have already left (Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Baltimore Orioles, Gray Catbirds, Indigo Buntings).

Today I even had a Pine Warbler stop by the birdbath. God, this time of year is so much fun! You should see the pictures I got of that bird!!

There's a difference between a suggestion and an order.
Bug zappers are evil. They rarely kill mosquitoes. They kill the good bugs instead.

I keep count of the quail and dove. You never know when a lib is really going to screw things up and we might have to eat those birds to survive!

I agree. Why do you think I am against killing if it isn't for survival? As a conservative, I believe in conserving what we have. Some day we might need it.

You can eat the coyotes! You never said if you will pay for my trip. I will let you adopt some, I will trap them for free and bring them to you all you have to do is pay for my gas!

I heard somewhere that when birds and fish died like that before, there was a major earth quake, I wont be surprise that we might have another earth quake soon, its been over 200 years since we had one around here.

You might want to do a internet search on pole shifting. The planet is undergoing a pole shift. About every 3600 years this end of an age event happens, the last itme was during the time of the Exiodus. I think some birds & fish died and rivers turned red back then? Some folks think we will have a reversal of the magnetic poles at this time some do not. Noone knows for shure. The Extinction Protocol website has a lot of info. Even the Sooby Doo cartoons are doing episodes about Nibru & end of an age events. Dont believe the official word of the goverment & NASA.

Vietnam - The 'most dangerous' earthquakes so far have hit at Song Tranh 2 hydro-power plant. On the morning of September 17, two earthquakes occurred in the region of Song Tranh 2 Hydropower Plant, with the shallowest level so far. The quakes are considered dangerous, with high surface devastating power. At 0h37 on September 17, the ground in Bac Tra My district of Quang Nam province suddenly emitted explosion. Houses were shaken so strongly that many people who were sleeping had to get up to run out of their houses. At almost 5am, another quake occurred after underground explosions. The two earthquakes lasted for more than 5 seconds, longer than the previous tremors. The consecutive earthquakes over the past week have affected 17 houses, two schools and a number of offices in the area. Two houses in Tra Doc commune were badly damaged, forcing the owners to leave their homes and live temporarily in the houses of their neighbors.
The Institute of Geophysics has confirmed that its seismic stations recorded an earthquake at nearly 5am this morning, with 2.7 Richter scales. The epicenter was about 22 km from the Song Tranh 2 Dam in Bac Tra My district. The second quake could be smaller than 2 Richter scales so the institute’s seismic stations could not record it. Most earthquakes occurred in the past week occurred on a fault zone in the northeast-southwest direction, near the Song Tranh 2 Hydropower Plant. The recent earthquake was only 2.7 Richter scales but it was the shallowest quake so far. A specialist from the Institute of Geophysics said that the less deep earthquakes are, the more dangerous they are and capable of surface devastation.
According to statistics of the Institute of Geophysics, from August 17 to September 17, its earthquake monitoring stations in Binh Dinh and Hue and the accelerators installed at Song Tranh 2 hydroelectric dam recorded 17 tremors. The two biggest quakes occurred at 8.46pm on September 3 with magnitude of 4.2 Richter scales and at 9.27am on September 7 with 4 Richter scales. The Chair of the Quang Nam Provincial People's Council, expressed his concern over the recent earthquakes in the region of Song Tranh 2 hydropower plant. He said that the government should consider carefully when allowing the Vietnam Electricity Group to store water in the Song Tranh 2 hydroelectric reservoirs. The local authorities are implementing a training program for local people who live close to the plant to respond to earthquakes. The local administration has also prepared evacuation plans in the worst cases.
"If it is found unsafe, Quang Nam province will ask the government to not allow EVN to store water in the Song Tranh 2 reservoir. The province will continue to bring this issue to the National Assembly session in October." The 2 Hydropower Project Management Board said there are nearly 600 electronic devices in the body of the dam, with a full range of functions such as: monitoring temperature, earthquake, thermal displacement slot, etc. to ensure safe operation of the dam. Last week, the Deputy Prime Minister asked EVN to regular inspect and report on the operation of the dam. EVN was also asked to provide the data from the monitoring devices inside the dam body to the People's Committee of Quang Nam province and Bac Tra My district and relevant agencies. The Deputy Prime Minister also asked the Ministry of Science and Technology to coordinate with the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology to conduct surveys, research, assessment of earthquakes in Bac Tra My district, Quang Nam province.

Yesterday there was one Raptor sitting in a tree stand with a Scarlet Tanager, a Swainson's Thrush, three Yellow-rumped Warblers, an American Redstart and a bunch of Cedar Waxwings. Have you ever witnessed THAT???

Almost, I saw exactly what you were talking about 15 months ago without the Redstart. Instead there was a New Mexico ruby throated split brown top squaler. Prettiest bird you ever seen.
