One of the links did have someone suggesting the birds were all roosting in one tree and got sucked up by a washing machine like wind one hell of a lot of birds in one tree.
New Jersey pet owners still looked to the local government for reassurance, however, that their animals would not be affected by the pesticide. At the very least, one resident said, they could have received a warning about the culling in advance. "People around (here) are really worried," 75-year-old George Gibson, of Griggstown, told The Associated Press. "They should have told us what they were going to do because we have pets. One guy's dog was chewing on the dead birds and we didn't know what kind of diseases they had died from."

"The birds obviously hit something very hard and had hemorrhages," said Rowe.
"Initial examinations of a few of the dead birds showed trauma. Whether or not this trauma was from the force of hitting the ground when they fell or from something that contacted them in the air, we don't know," she said.

I'm not. I was not citing the fireworks as the cause of the death of the birds. I was stating that the cause for the eyewitness reports for loud noises was caused by fireworks.
I was using Occams Razor to illustrate that his theory requires many assumptions, while the fireworks causing the loud noises requires none.
Reading comprehension FTW.

No I don't, I think I was mistaken. Go ahead and scratch that for now. Seems localized to the AR, LA, KY areas.
But I don't like the sources sited, or haven't fully read thru them.edit on 3-1-2011 by Paroxysm because: (no reason given)

Dont know, the birds show sign of physical trauma.
Could that happen from falling out of the sky, and hitting the ground?
