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. Read more

Me too! It was six years ago this week that a mind-boggling movement of blackbirds migrated above my Mom's house. I was there that morning and we watched in amazement as a large, wide stream of blackbirds made their way south. As far as the eye could see, birds filled the sky- appearing in the northern horizon, flying right over hers and the neighbors property, and then disappearing into the southern horizon. They just kept coming and coming and coming like a massive cloud. They did not even stop in the surrounding farm fields.
I watched in awe for about an hour before having to leave. Talking to my Mom later that night, she said the flock took all day to pass over. She talks about it to this day and hopes to see that again. We estimate it consisted of 15 million+ blackbirds.
That was an amazing spectacle of nature I will never forget. I am glad we still have the opportunity to witness events like that. It's sad that some people don't appreciate things like that.
Not to be a downer. It makes me furious~! The Wind Farms they tout chew up migrating birds.

THe freaking 'wireless' cell phone towers ly in the direct path of migratnions.

"Roadblocks in Arizona do not violate anybodies rights."
Excuse me, but a roadblock is a way of saying, "We believe you have something we don't want you to have, therefore, you must prove yourself innocent by letting us search your vehicle."

Whatever happened to probable cause Warrior?
Or Illegal search and seizure?
Or Innocent until proven guilty IN THE COURT OF LAW?

You have absolutely NO CONCEPT of where we have come, compared to where we have been. Our founders would cringe at the amount of freedoms we have given away. and at the amount of control the government has over every aspect of our lives.

Roadblocks have been used by law enforcemnt for decades. Your car does not get searched unless their is probable cause. You probably think stopping at a red light infringes upon your freedoms also. You don't know what freedom is.
