As soon as you show that a snow goose is a small bird.

Really? It's easier for you to buy a story about a methane cloud than some bird disease? .
You don't think that takes a bit more imagination than disease?

Oh and information about when to take off is determined by daylight hours. That's how they know when to start a migration going north or south. It's not the choice of any lead bird. Where to stop is always going to be near a water source because geese are water fowl.

Just look up goose migration. The lead bird is what ever birds up front. They take turns because the lead bird is in a position which requires more energy expenditures. The v formation is to save energy on long flights. The birds follow rivers or mountain ranges to get from breeding grounds to winter quarters. You give them way more credit than is due. Most of what they do is instinct. Not information passed from one goose to another except genetically. How would they do that? Geese don't talk to each other. I've only heard two sounds from geese. Honk or hiss. They don't pass information from generation to generation except for genetic instinct. Like taking off when the days start getting longer or shorter.
There's no hierarchies is bird populations. They're hardly self aware never mind recognizing a leader.
I could ask you if you're a migrating bird as well. What a dumb question.

Your figures assume the birds took off right after feeding or drinking at the source of the infection but they could have landed at sunset and not taken off for many hours. Your figure also assumes,they all ate and drank at exactly the same time. That they all took off at exactly the,same time, that their systems process this exactly the same way...

The bodies were located at a few different spots. Lakes and animal management areas.
And yes there will probably be bodies that are never found. One's that get eaten by other animals etc...

Actually, this is an oportunity of a lifetime:

Go to the pet shop and buy a canary, take it to Mud Lake, give it some water from the lake, preferably mixed with some greenish goose droppings, sit back and observe how it gets hit by an invisible UFO...

Yes there were a lot of assumptions in my calculations. But given the additional variables that you infer, the trail of dead birds would be much longer than 300 miles, beginning closer to the source of infection.



Your figure also assumes,they all ate and drank at exactly the same time. That they all took off at exactly the,same time, that their systems process this exactly the same way...

Not exactly. Given the documented incubation period of 6 to 12 hours, the distribution of dead geese would remain the same whether they took off one at a time, or all at once. Presumably that distribution would have been a gaussian function with most of the carcasses found near the mean of 9 hours.



The bodies were located at a few different spots. Lakes and animal management areas.

My original calculations were based on the headline that indicated they fell out of the air. However, in reading the actual press release from Idaho Fish and Game, it appears that the geese had landed at the lakes and died in those locations, rather than dropping out of the air. So, that information for the most part negates my trail-of-death hypothesis.



And yes there will probably be bodies that are never found. One's that get eaten by other animals etc...

That's the most disconcerting part for me. Even though the disease itself only affects birds and poultry, other animals can carry the disease bacteria and spread the infection. There were concerns from Idaho Fish and Game concerning some eagles that were spotted in the areas where the dead geese were found.

Had my trail-of-death hypothesis been valid the possibility of an epidemic would be much higher. However, because the carcasses were mostly confined to a limited area, a more widespread epidemic is unlikely.

How would they do that? Geese don't talk to each other.

If they are a year old they had made the trip once. The older birds have made the trip more times and know the route better than younger birds. They are also stronger and can lead longer. Sure they change out, once direction is established. They find water by looking for the glint off water at altitude. Knowing stop and rest "ponds" along the way is the same for migratory beds as it is for older elephants to know location of water holes and older primates to know which season trees fruit and where they are in the Jungle.

Birds find these way points and food sources because they have been there before and know the way. Most of the birds know the distance between waypoints require differing amounts of reserve energy. This leg is long, load up, this leg is short, travel light. If the birds become lost for some reason, they can all fly to exhaustion or starvation and thats why these events happen, because they all stick together. They fly to the leader, even 'dozing' on the wing to conserve energy.

I understand the echelon formation thing, too.

Humans emulate this behavior under certain circumstances. Flights of bombers in WWII all flew to the lead navigator and dropped their bombs to the lead bombardier. Flight 19 became lost over the infamous Bermuda triangle and all ditched together when their fuel ran out.

Just human examples of the necessities encountered when navigating over long distances.

Over a body of water?

Methane release maybe?


There have been mass die-offs due to methane clouds before.

That was my first thought when reading the OP. If the lab doesn't come back with some other confirmed method of death my money is on methane cloud.

Some animals eat the same poisonous substance or toxic plant or toxic water which could be bloom based, and die on mass.

The disease is not confined to Idaho, if you check this out:
New and Ongoing Wildlife Mortality Events Nationwide

you will see that recent and ongoing avian cholera outbreaks are ocurring in California (mainly), but also Montana, Illinois, Nevada.

Especially California is relevant, as the birds would have passed there before stopping over at Idaho.

so large invisible silent craft could be a cause of these deaths (seeing as the corresponding thread in UFO forum was redirected here)

In this case clearly they are all over a year old. They are just now returning to their breeding grounds from where they spend the winter. There would not be any geese who had not at least made the trip south once. .
What are you going on about. " this leg is long load up, this leg is short travel light"
They do not communicate stuff like that. They take off from winter quarters when the days begin to get longer. They travel during daylight hours. They land and feed and rest when the whim hits them during the day and land for the night when the sun starts to set. They don't know a good feeding area from a bad feeding area. They don't know distances. A small lake that was there one year might be dried up the next. A river that was teaming with fish may be low due to lack of rain or snow or may be flooded and raging so it can't be used. These animals are opportunists. They take What they can when they can.
No goose is laying out an itinerary for the trip or saying HEY kids this next leg of the journey there are not many lakes or rivers so you'd better load up. Stop giving these dumb animals qualities they don't possess

your correct there's much more to this!! viruses bacterial infections don't work this way it takes time for these things to spread and they spread one by one not all at once not to mention if they were that sick they wouldn't be flying. absolutely ridiculous so tired of the bs that's being fed to the public they just say whatever will shut us up... this has to be the dumbest nation on earth and in recorded history.
I may believe it when I see people dropping in droves. whomever is reaching for an explanation and it's not a very good one
