Heres an article from today that has a vet saying these birds died from MULTIPLE blunt force traumas to their vital organs.
Could this reinforce the hail theory? or could this enforce the idea of EM waves in the atmosphere crushing the birds in mid flight somehow

Did no one else watch Flash Forward, lots of birds fall out of the sky in that.
The impact damage you are seeing is the damage the birds sustain from falling XXXX feet to the ground.
BEEBE, Ark. — Preliminary autopsies on 17 of the up to 5,000 blackbirds that fell on this town indicate they died of blunt trauma to their organs, the state's top veterinarian told NBC News on Monday.
Their stomachs were empty, which rules out poison, Dr. George Badley said, and they died in midair, not on impact with the ground.
That evidence, and the fact that the red-winged blackbirds fly in close flocks, suggests they suffered some massive midair collision, he added. That lends weight to theories that they were startled by something.
Earlier Monday, the estimated number of dead birds was raised to between 4,000 and 5,000, up sharply from the initial estimate of 1,000.
"they keep telling us there's nothing to worry about, but they've got EPA, Game and Fish, State Police, etc...and they keep flying that helicopter overhead for the past 3 days... Doesn't give us any confidence if "there's nothing to worry about!"

This would be plausible if there were structures high enough for birds to impact into, high in the air but I live in Missouri near the Arkansas border and there are no high structures high enough for a bird impact caused from an earthquake.
Situation Update No. 1 On 03.01.2011 at 03:50 GMT+2 An estimated 100,000 fish have died in the northwest of Arkansas, the same state where up to 5000 dead birds recently fell from the sky. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said it suspected disease was to blame for the death of the drum fish, which floated in the water and lined the banks of a 30-kilometre stretch of the Arkansas River near Ozark, about 200km northwest of Little Rock, CNN reported on Sunday. Ozark is about 200km west of the town of Beebe, where game wardens were trying to find out why up to 5000 blackbirds fell from the sky just before midnight on New Year's Eve, CNN said. Keith Stephens from the game and fish commission said fish kills occurred every year but the size of the latest one was unusual, and suggested some sort of disease was to blame. "The fish kill only affected one species of fish," he told CNN. "If it was from a pollutant, it would have affected all of the fish, not just drum fish." A tugboat operator discovered the dead fish on Friday night, and fisheries officials collected some of the dying animals to conduct tests.
