Back in August 10 2006, apparently a large number of birds... an extremely large number of birds, took flight from Chambers Island (located in the Bay
of Green Bay), and in a bizarre formation large enough to be seen on weather radar imagery; this happened the same day that good o' boy George W Bush
was coming to Green Bay WI.
Now... how many birds does it take to create an image like this?

According to experts, the birds captured on radar are probably double-crested cormorants or seagulls, although Robert Howe, a professor of biology and
environmental sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay was quoted as saying "It's a very interesting pattern. It is almost
certainly caused by birds, but I am not sure what kind" Italics added by myself.
Secondly, how often does this occur? You would think that, with the bird population as it is, and the number of birds which migrate, that this would
be a common occurrence, but it isn't.
This was taken, in part, from a newspaper article as seen in the Green Bay Press Gazette... I don't have the date of it, since I was apparently too
silly for my own good to save the header.
