The time it takes for Earth’s magnetic field to reverse polarity is approximately 7000 years, but the time it takes for the reversal to occur is shorter at low latitudes than at high latitudes, a geologist funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) has concluded. Brad Clement of Florida International University published his findings in this week’s issue of the journal Nature. The results are a major step forward in scientists’ understanding of how Earth?s magnetic field works.
posted on 25-4-2007 @ 11:25 PM this post The changes that are happening will take some time to take effect.
The entire solar system goes through these changes every once in a while, and there are other major changes that also have happened and left us a signature in the geological record which says these major extinctions happen every 62 million years. The last major extinction was 65 million years ago, so we are overdue for the next one.
We have been seeing that there are also climatic changes in other planets in the solar system and even in our sun. These changes are affecting our sun, and the Earths magnetic field, which in turn is causing the problems with the frogs, the birds, the fish the bees ect.
As i said before, these events do not happen overnight, andyou can be certain that it will get worse before it gets better.
Anyways, the world is not going to end because this has happened many times in the past, but things will continue to change and a lot of people, the flora and also animals will be affected by these changes.

Out of 2,000 pidgeons that began a 93 mile race on Thursday, only 500 made it back to their lofts. There were no reports on the other 1,500 pidgeons. These birds are said to use the sun and the Earth's magnetic field to find their way, and they are reputed as never getting lost, only a few are at risk of being caught by some predator.

"The weather was perfect - no rain, no thunder and no strong winds," he said.
"I have worked with pigeons since 1960 and have never experienced anything like this," Nilsson said, adding that the birds might have been thrown off course by subtle changes in the earths magnetic field.

With this latest report we can see that strange things are not happening just to a few groups of birds. Perhaps the report from the NYT about the Earth's magnetic field collapsing is real and its the problem for the strange behaviour of all these birds.

Unless you learn to use your own, or build a synthetic, merkaba field generator you get a memory wipe.
Maintain your own magnetic grid.

The magnetosphere is a global envelope but these bird fallings are not global...they may not be isolated incidents but they're certainly not ubiquitous.
