Here is the image of google maps and the magnetic anomaly map.

A very obvious channel of magnetic energy directly into beebe.

There is a toxic substance that allows birds to "see" the Earth's magnetosphere. I wonder if if changes in this substance due to this week's announcement of the disappearance of a huge portion of tha magnetosphere could have caused this--just a guess, of course.

Well just to be fare maybe the black birds got excited because they just found out the word
what word?

Not sure if it's been said but I recently watched a movie called "The Core" well in it there is a scene where lots of birds go crazy and die.

Could it have to do with electromagnetism? Birds use Magnetic Feilds to know where to fly...perhaps they got zapped by a EMP and died?

Far Fetched but it's either a EMP or the earths magnetic field is breaking down (Plot of the movie)...or it's a completely different reason that I don't understand.

I said that on page 11 of this thread.

My theory seems to be bypassed, that ok

Sorry sometimes I jump the gun in posting in popular threads. It's sad that I can't have the patience to read 11 pages...but ya know.

I was just wondering if there were any accurate reports on the number of birds that died in South America and if so, what type of birds died.

Q. What is the range of the American redwing?

A. The American redwing is found over most of North America. See its range map

Q. What is the redwing's habitat?

A. Redwings can be found in a wide range of habitats, but they usually nest in marshes and spend a lot of time feeding in fields. Sometimes they visit backyard bird feeders.

Q. What is the redwing's role in the ecosystem?

A. Redwings are omnivores. They eat a wide range of food in marshes during the breeding season. The rest of the year they mainly eat seeds on the ground. They eat a lot of grain.

Redwings are in turn eaten by foxes, bobcats, hawks, shrikes, and owls, and crows and blue jays often take their eggs and babies. Hundreds of thousands of redwings are poisoned every year in places where they destroy crops.

Q. What are a redwing's enemies?

A. Natural predators and humans are the redwing's worst enemies.

Q. What do redwings eat?

A. Redwings eat large quantities of seeds and insects.

Q. How do scientists learn where the redwings from one state or province migrate for the winter?

A. Scientists study bird banding data to learn where redwings go. They put thousands of numbered bands on redwing legs, but they know they will only recover data from a few of these birds in the future. So it takes a long time to amass enough data for them to draw accurate conclusions. Meanwhile, redwings can change some of their migration patterns, making the research even more complicated.

Q.How can we participate in Journey North's Red-winged Blackbird Migration Study?

A.You can

* Report the first redwing you SEE
* Report OTHER interesting redwing sightings and behaviors

Q. Which returns first: males or females?

A. Male redwings arrive on the breeding grounds a few days to a few weeks before the females return. Females look like large sparrows, so are often unnoticed.

Q. What do redwings eat when getting ready for their migration?

A. During late winter and late summer, redwings pig out on as much food as they can, mostly grain.

Q. Do redwings travel together when they migrate?

A. Yes, they form flocks for both feeding and flying during migration.

Q. What might be some advantages for redwings to migrate in groups?

A. While feeding, the more redwings there are, the more likely that at least one of them will notice a predator and warn the rest. During migratory flights, hawks have trouble singling out one redwing to strike when faced with their fast-moving, tight migratory flocks.

Q. Where do redwings spend the winter?

A. Some redwings winter all the way up in southern Canada and the northern states, but the majority of them winter in the central states, especially in agricultural areas.

Q. Do redwings migrate by day or night?

A. Redwings mostly migrate during daytime.

Q. When do redwings leave their wintering grounds?

A. Redwings typically start moving northward in mid-February, and reach the northern states by March.

Q. Many neotropical migrants have a fairly regular migration from year to year. Why don't redwings depart at almost the identical time each spring?

A. Neotropical migrants have no way of knowing what the weather may be like across the Gulf of Mexico when they leave their wintering grounds. Most of them migrate much later than redwings, and time their migration by daylength. Redwings are very dependent on open water on their marshland nesting territories. Since weather conditions vary enormously from one year to the next, so redwing migration varies, too.

Q. How do redwings prepare for the journey north?

A. Redwings double their fat reserves before migrationl, which helps fuel their flight. Adults molt, growing new body and flight feathers, in summer after they've finished breeding: these feathers will be fresh for fall migration, provide maximum warmth in winter, and still be in good enough condition for spring migration.

Q. When do the redwings arrive in their breeding marshes?

A. Male redwings arrive sometime between mid-February and mid-March.

Q. What do the redwings do first upon arrival back on their territories in the spring?

A. Males spend their mornings in the marsh, displaying and defending their territories. Until the weather is warm enough for food production in the marsh, they often leave in afternoon to feed in a field.

Q. What are some of the hazards that redwings face on their long migrations?

A. Being in so much unfamiliar territory, redwings are more vulnerable to predators during migration than when they are on a breeding territory. They only rarely hit communications towers, because they migrate by day. If they join a huge flock that causes damage on a farm, they may get poisoned or shot.

Very good Higherground!

Don't forget though, there are 10 different types of blackbirds in the midwest and the news account on the OP did not specify the type. I have seen a lot of cowbirds around here lately which are also considered blackbirds.
I'm from the mingo wildlife area in missouri so I can watch them high and as thick as clouds going overhead but then again darkangel tends to differ with that. By the way where are you darkangel?

I'd think it's a safe bet to say the duck had a mid air collision with one of the 5,000 plunging BlackBirds. It's funny all the Bird stories whether they died or were just disoriented happened in January except for 1 in March from 2009 forward. Also aside from Geese migrating the wrong way, keeping ragged formations and smacking into ice covered lakes Crows are walking around a lot more. I've seen several that will walk through my side of the apartment complex instead of flying through or over like they used too. They just walk through looking at everything, they'll walk, well hop right past me nice and calm.

Animals normally like me but thats just plain weird, my avatar has been enjoying it, they don't try and fly away from him either but he'll get a good foot or two away from the bird before they get out to the parking lot and he breaks off the chase expecting they'll take to the sky.

CNN is now reporting 4,000 - 5,000 blackbirds fell from the sky in Beebe, up from 1,000.

And the drum fish in Ozark, Ark is estimated to be 100,000 dead in a 20 mile section of the river.

Lots of small EQs in the general area between the dead fish and the dead birds.

Also, these birds should have been roosting/sleeping at 1130 pm on 12/31/10...why did they fall from the sky?

A local meteoroligst was interested in the bird story, so he grabbed radar images from 1130 pm. Closest storm was 50 miles to the east. radar image

The birds in South America that dropped from the sky happened at the place where the 6.5 mag quake just happened, near Bio Bio Chile.......

maybe the New Madrid is going to let go?

That is a chilling thought, what with the unusual EQ activity in Indiana along the New Madrid and related faults.

Does anyone have a map to place the fish kill and the black birds along the NM faultline?

One thing weird: it seems a species specific issue, Drum fish, black birds and starlings..

Whoa... just looked up where the mini-swarm is, and where the fish kill/bird kill is -- 9 miles away....

These are not all redwing blackbirds. Hey Highlander, you seem to know about these. Do they migrate together with other types of blackbirds?

Someone posted about 10k+-ish birds dead in Manitoba Canada.

Manitoba Bird Death

posted on Jan, 3 2011 @ 01:29 AM

thank you for that info and link.

that truly makes my theory make more and more sense (to me anyways). I doubt very much a disease or even a fault-line (since Manitoba is mostly prairie-land as such would be so 'selective' and occurring so randomly (as suggested in the article). Hmm curious.

*also, notice as I said, that these phenomenon are occurring in lesser populated areas (away from the busy air traffic grid)? A warning maybe? An intentionally picked out area for the warning?

Never heard of it so suffice it to say, never saw it. Is it about the core of the Earth? Or more metaphoric like, a core of the apple that rots?

What happened? Animals up and died?

It's called the internet. You do a google search with fewer words then you just typed in your question. The internet comes out of the box you are looking at right now.

Lockheed Martin is building the THAAD missile defense system not far from where those birds died.

The radar truck for the THAAD launcher would have killed those birds. Cooked with microwaves....yummy!

Check this story out! VERY interesting. Someone heard a sonic boom... wonder if it was a meteor or something even stranger.

Can anyone in those areas do even an 'amateur' autopsy on a few of these birds and compare notes??

I am sure they would be easy pickins to find to those living in these drop areas.

and Pharyax, thank you also, that vid is a good example of what I was thinking occurred.
