Strange coincidence, don't you think? Poisoned banquets (or bird poop) could easily find their way into the water supply, which could explain the die-off of fish in the region. It's really no wonder the USDA keeps these things under wraps - especially if the poison is able to contaminate water supplies.

And Brazil has 100 Tons of Dead fish washing up on it's coast, beginning last Thursday.
Then, there is now a report of dead birds in Kentucky lady's yard.
Not sure what, but SOMETHING is going on!
do you really believe a controlled kill would take 10 months to provide a result? and, why only 1000 when the goal is 6 million?
i would think a fresh public notice would have been presented, if that's the case. Ppl were reminded to refrain from consumption during the baiting.

According to the state veterinarian who is doing the autopsies, the birds were roosting, because blackbirds don't fly at night. If the boom was from fireworks, I don't think it went off in the middle of the flock while they were flying, but rather startled them from their roosts. Here is the interview transcript: www.npr.org...
He doesn't sound too certain about the cause of the boom. Maybe there was a boom, but from imminent earthquake activity, as some others mentioned. He said they all had internal bleeding and that it could have been caused by flying into things, which is what their eyewitness (earwitness?) supposedly heard. Can internal bleeding in birds also be caused by seismic activity, gas, the water going acidic, or something like that?
Please forgive me if this is already covered, I am still in the process of going through the thread and didn't want to have to backtrack to respond about the flying at night once I got all the way to the end.
please read further here: books.google.com... &hl=en&ei=KGojTa2nBYeglAecztGEDA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CBkQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=blackbirds%2Bnight%20flight&f=false
"Blackbird flocks migrate north mostly at night, feeding during the day."
