just picked this one up from China Daily. I think the article offers a rational outlook towards trying to understand a rather baffling event.
The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) urged more research into baffling deaths - ranging from why whales sometimes make the fatal mistake of
swimming onto beaches to recent bird deaths, dubbed the "Aflockalypse" by one newspaper. "Science is struggling to explain these things. These are
examples of the surprises that nature can still bring," said Nick Nuttall, spokesman of Nairobi-based UNEP. "More research is needed."

As i scan the other threads here I'm simultaneously seeing another quite baffling phenomenon that most definitely must be connected.

Hey, I post it as I pick it up .
Biologist seem to say that we shouldn't worry.

Well I don't think that we should not worry, but I can see some more serious ideas at the end of the article. We have all fallen prey to our own
So what’s happening this time? Blame technology, says famed Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson. With the Internet, cell phones and worldwide
communications, people are noticing events, connecting the dots more. "This instant and global communication, it’s just a human instinct to read
mystery and portents of dangers and wondrous things in events that are unusual," Wilson told The Associated Press on Thursday. "Not to worry, these
are not portents that the world is about to come to an end." Wilson and the others say instant communications — especially when people can whip out
smart phones to take pictures of critter carcasses and then post them on the Internet — is giving a skewed view of what is happening in the
environment. The irony is that mass die-offs — usually of animals with large populations — are getting the attention while a larger but slower
mass extinction of thousands of species because of human activity is ignored, Wilson said.
