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.

I think sending a virus to Iran's computer system is a good thing, but altering Jan Brewer's video to make her look even uglier, is dirty pool.

And the liberal news media alters George Zimmerman's picture to make him look white and alters the 911 call to make him sound racist. Just to try and make it look like a white on black crime. That's about as chicken siht as it gets. I hope these people at the news get sued big time.

Oh and I thought is was that strong wind that blew my satellite dish out of kilter. Turning the receiver off and on did the trick. Then again, it may have been the black birds. (Anyone heard from Raptor, surely she's thawed out by now.)

How is everyones gardens doing? Mine is pretty good. Ive been out picking those big worms off the tomato plants. The ducks like those worms. Its been very hot 96 today. I freeze plastic jugs of water and put them in the dog house to keep the dogs cool. It works really well for rabbits also. we now have two baby deer that we are bottle feeding. Both are bucks. Eny road this thread is almost to 6000 post.

Ive just came back inside. Ive been outside since daybreak cutting up scrap iron. It already got too hot 85 degrees. I went by the garden and picked off 3 more tomato worms. They are a larva for a moth. My pasture is dry no dew on the ground this morning. We have 14 head grazing on 120 acres and they have the grass ate down pretty good. lots of those white egrets have came and ate the grasshoppers. Used to be We had a big flock of over 100 wild turkeys that would eat the grasshoppers. However many folks spread chicken litter on their pastures. Turkeys are very sucepetiable to pullorium diseases . The chicken house diseases killed all the young newly hatched turkey,s .Now the older dirds have died off and we only see a half dozen or so.

We need rain to get this burn ban off. Or it's going to be a boring 4th of July without fireworks.

I just wonder how many re-furbished nukes Russia is trying to return to Iran.

Don't have time to read all the other comments. In 2010, there were 2,000 birds that fell AND thousands of fish that went belly up. This was due to Phosgene gas confiscated from Iraq and dumped from planes coming out of PB Arsenal. John Wheeler was murdered two days later for attempting to expose this. In 2011, they killed some birds with fireworks to throw people with short attention spans and memories off the trail.

Okay, lets confiscate "Phosgene" gas from Iraq, transport it to Pine Bluff Arsenal, Arkansas. load it onto planes (how many planes?), take a little detour to Beebe, Arkansas (to refuel at Litle Rock AFB) to see if we can kill about 2,000 blackbirds and starlings, then dump the shit in the Arkansas River and kill thousands (okay, hundreds) of drum fish. The beauty of this poison is that it will only kill one human, John Wheeler. To complete the plan, we have to wait a year and hire some punks in Beebe to kill just a few more black birds with fireworks and fool KATV, Channel 7 to build the story up for a month then KTHV and KARK, trying to get viewers, will chime right in. There is a danger that we will be exposed by "Paul", but if he hasn't convinced everyone that he knows who shot John F. Kennedy and J.R. Ewing after all this time, we should be safe.

You and Churmudgeon will be happy to know that Beebe and five other White County, Arkansas cities will have fireworks displays on Independence Day despite the burn ban. However, no blackbirds will be killed legally because the season only runs from Midnight December 28th to Midnight January 3rd. Crow season is year-round, so conspiracy buffs can eat their fill.

Thats good new,s. Our two bottle deer are healthy & growing. I bought a gaggle of geese yesterday. I wanted then because they make a racket when someting is sneaking around. remember its illegal to hunt crows on sunday & monday. I like to hunt then from a deer blind placed upwind from dead rotting carrion. its almost as much entertainment as a sittin on the porch with a 12 pack and watching the bug zapper.

One likes to strike with his fornt legs when your are giving him his bottle. My wife has a bruse on he thigh where she got kicked when she picked one of them up. I wonder about the humming birds. Last year we had dozens at our feeders. This year we only have two. I have not seen many this year?
