Dead Birds Fall in Sweden, Louisiana, Arkansas and Kentucky; Now It's Time to Panic

Louisiana's dead birds
If Unsolved Mysteries is not still being made, perhaps the show should consider a comeback for this most recent international phenomenon: birds have now fallen from the sky across the American South, but also in Sweden, where "residents found 50 to 100 jackdaws on a street in Falköping southeast of Skövde." And the official line is still that fireworks are to blame. Maybe this year's crop of fireworks are extra potent?

Those 50 to 100, of course, are in addition to the 5,000 red-winged backbirds in Arkansas and the 500 of the same bird in Louisiana (to say nothing of Arkansas' own problem of 100,000 dead fish). In Kentucky, a woman reported dozens of dead birds near her property. Perhaps, one might posit, blackbirds are just extra-dumb. (The jackdaw is of the crow family.) Call it nature or a coincidence, but either way, this whole thing is getting to be a little much, all at once.

The Local reports:

"We have received information from local residents last night. Our main theory is that the birds were scared away because of the fireworks and landed on the road, but couldn't fly away from the stress and were hit by a car," he explained to The Local on Wednesday.

He added that they likely had difficulty orienting themselves in the dark and although they have received one report involving a car collision with the birds, ter Horst believes they may have been hit by more.

"We will continue to look at whether there are other theories, but then we have to do an autopsy on the birds. The birds just now are in a car on the way to a laboratory in Uppsala. We don't know exactly what happened yet, but we will continue the investigation," he added.

Conspiracy theorists must be so jittery -- they thought we had until 2012, at least!

This all has to do with big OIL, it is called fracking natural gas... It is polluting the water with toxic chemicals. The birds roost close to the water which has the chemicals leaching from the ground. Ark has had over 450 earth quakes in the last two months, in the 19th century Ark had a total of 19 quakes for the whole century. WAKE UP, your enviroment is being destroyed, you are next on the list suckers.

TyThe crow and members of the crow family are the smartest of birds. So that nips it in the bud for your DUMB "blackbirds are just extra-dumb" theory

You know, the fact that you jokingly suggest that corvids (crow family) are 'stupid' suggests that you don't know what in hell you are talking about. This tends to be a handicap when writing a news story.

Could the earths magnetic fields be changing and causing the birds to become disoriented and lose their sense of navigation?

uhh that would be a "necropsy" of the birds. An autopsy of a bird would mean a bird is doing the investigation!

Birds, I understand ar related to the dinosaurs that became extinct. Is this a portent for mankind?

Or are we looking at suicide bomber's attempt to use birds (since so many of their people have died in suicide bombings??) Are there lovely virgin maiden birds waiting for the birds upon their death??

Birds have a natural homing sense that brings them to and from their natural habitat relative to migration. I doubt they became "confused" in the dark.

There was talk about buried silohs in Arkansas back in the 60's that were well guarded and off limits to the public. There is also a high cancer rate in those areas from what I understand- I'm originally from near the Beebe, Arkansas area. I wonder if the fireworks on new year's eve are simply being used as a plausable cover for the real testing that might be going on? More so, if our wildlife is mysteriously dying "for no good reason", are we the next target? Where's Jesse Ventura when we, The People, need answers?

no the magnetic field is called HAARP... they are conducting tests in order to see if they can kill specific species .. we are next... but I'm sure they will have a reason for the thousands of deaths that they will cause.... probally fireworks.. LOL... Americans are stupid people...

What is this? THE CORE? THE STAND? SIGNS?!

Lets connect the earthquakes in Guy, Arkansas as well...

They ran into an alien force field, plain and simple. I'm from the town next to Beebe, and I'm just waiting for Arkansas to become a giant pit of nothingness...Oh wait, it already is.

I live in Pangburn, Ar. Near one of those missile silos. I took my daughter there over Christmas to show her where it was and tell her about a deadly fire there in the 60's. It is well hidden unless you know where it is. I don't think our cancer rate is any higher than any other rural area.I also live 20 miles from Beebe Ar. and I think the recent gas drilling in this area has more to do with recent phenomena in our area, rather than the silos.

I concur we are stupid but not from the gene pool but from the 50 years of fluorinationAnd the never-ending bombardment of TV and government schooling.We are by design a benevolent, intelligent creative and resourceful people.Unbeknown of the silent secret war that was been waged against us.I pray we wake up, stand up and reclaim this once great nation.Sadly we may be to late from this go round. For as we sit and fuss about.Our murders hurries about to the per paired bunkers to await safely for the passing of Xand the waters to resend.

Well, so far you're the only person who appears to be on the right track and this is just the beginning. Reaearchers here ind around the globe have been exploring the use og these energy systems for decades. Do a search on: "High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program" and see what comes up!

Yeah, I could be wrong but please explain why we've never seen large die-offs of animals every 4th of July?

You're stupid. I'm from Arkansas. I work at the state lab were the testing is being done. You people have no idea what you're talking about and you just sound ignorant every time you post this dumb ass bull shit. Get a life and leave it to the experts. Thanks.

I agree with Hawkdude. HAARP is a defense program that has been doing research on radio waves in the ionosphere. They have been blamed for many disasters and something about this (after I did do a bit of research) makes sense.

They have transmitters in Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Norway. Think of the paths. I know these are occurring in concentrated areas, but if you apply a bit of knowledge and common sense, HAARP could have done something that explains things. We may never know.This is horrible. However, I would rather have a scientific and practical explanation. This simply makes sense to me.

Really? I've been a lifelong skeptic about things such as this, but more and more, there's evidence of government cover ups for many of the weird and highly unusual things that have been going on as of late. Ever watch Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory?" Tell me that he's full if shit when the cameras don't lie. Why is the government so hell-bent on shutting him up? Because he's wrong? NO, because he's making the big boys SQUIRM. Thousands of dead birds all of a sudden? You KNOW something's very wrong.

Would they be the same experts who report that all the BP oil has magically disappeared from the Gulf of Mexico? Or the experts who continue to insist the Great Recession ended in July of 09 and the economy is totally recovering? Maybe the experts who said Vioxx was safe until it killed 50,000 people?

Yea. Experts. They're so... expert in stuff...
