This whole thing is rather unsettling. If you do DVR the newreport, please let us know more about it. I'm farther south than you in Jersey... and I have not noticed dead birds yet, but I will be searching the local news stories here to see what I can find.
I really hope they aren't posioning Starlings and Black Birds. That's just cruel.

Wow,

I am in Franklin NJ right now. I haven't seen any dead birds or heard anything about. I will have to ask around. I don't see how it could Mosquito related because it way to cold here for that.

Peace

I hope they have done their homework before getting rid of an important section of the ecosystem. I have read where they have taken steps in other areas to reduce bird populations that resulted in the unintended consequence of huge insect populations.

They really need to come clean as dogs and cats will bother these dead birds and could become very sick.

Okay now don't jump on me too hard for this, could it be chemtrails??? I am just learning about these things and that is the first thing that popped into my head. Just a thought, what do you think???? red

I live about 15 miles from the outbreak in Western Canada and they are culling 60,000 turkeys and have closed a 3 kilometer radius around the farm prohibiting any poultry transport of any kind. This has been reported as an "H5" strain but they never finished after the H5 so we can only fear the worst.
Here is the links to the original news articles.

Forgive my ignorance on the subject, but what exactly is or are "chemtrails"?

Starlings are an invasive species. They are killing off a lot of native species because they steal their nests. That would explain why the agency wants to kill them off.
They have been a problem for quite some time.

Pest Bird Species
Problem Birds in Oregon

Starling Management

They are probably trying to get the problem before a migration. Though an extermination of this scale should of been broadcasted.

But, sometimes the best efforts get way out of hand.

Every winter the starlings get more numerous. Currently, there is a huge flock outside my house in the trees in my backyard. The tree looks like it is full of leaves - black leaves. If it wasn't for the very loud cacophony of bird noises outside you would think it was the middle of spring given how fully foliated the trees appear.

Then in a moment they decide to move and thousands and thousands of birds rise into the air. They take off in the same way bats do - forming a giant spiral of birds rising a few stories into the air above the trees. Then the flock picks a direction and a cloud of blackness moves into the horizon and out of sight.

It is an amazing display that every year has gotten worse and worse. The starlings are becoming a blight. Sometimes I hear a Hitchcock voice-over when I walk outside.

Starlings are a big problem here in Arkansas, also. They hail from Europe, not indigenous.
They are a complete nuisance. And they choke out local species.

I'm sure they know what they're doing.

One word,

Chemtrails.

I happen to know that bird flu has been here in AR. also. It has not been in the media but chicken farms around here had a bad case of it only about a month ago. Now the chickens are being vaccinated for it. I also noticed that around the time the birds had it almost everyone around here had the flu.

That would really freak me out.

Knowing it's nearby on a farm and all around are flu'd up.

Would all within an exclusion zone not have to be jabbed?

also a large number of bats are dieing in the same area

All of the ones that did not die were shipped out to be proccessed and eaten. That is the really scary part.

That can't be true.

Would it not be safer to cull?

Can't possibly comment on what the cause of this may be, but this kind of thing seems to happen occasionally, for some strange reason. ATS has several threads, just search for "bird deaths" and you'll see plenty about other cases like this.


Just thought I'd mention it...

How close is this to the area where the people were reporting a strange smell of maple syrup in the air?

Wonder if they are related.



Wow that is so strange I lived in northern New Jersey for 29 years and I do remember that smell at certain times, we never knew what it was and never heard anything about it I remember everyone being concerned. I don't remember if it affected us in any such way. Strange Sorry for being off topic.

Is this like all the Pelicans falling dead along the West Coast?

It is probably something we are doing...like how sonar affects whales and dolphins....what we do with 'air' affects birdlife.

What we do with 'air'...like HAARP, weather control, and other mundane designs of intelligence we use for the worng purposes.

Here in Arkansas, for many people, all they HAVE are their chickens for their livelihood. These chicken farmers often times, don't make much money at all. They would try to keep it as quiet as possible. It wouldn't surprise me if something like that happened.

I wonder if the virus can be transmitted AFTER the birds have been processed.
I would imagine that between the birds being dropped in boiling water and then later being frozen that the virus would be killed.
I would still say the safest thing would be to cull the flocks, but who knows.

All starlings in America can be traced back to the actions of one man,...... a couple of hundred breeding pairs were released in central park by a man who wanted all the birds mentioned by shakespeare in his plays to be in America.
Strange but apparently true.
