FOLLY BEACH -- Hundreds of thousands of dead menhaden littered the sand here Thursday, stretching in either direction from the Folly Pier in a line along the tide wash as far as could be seen. Blackbirds and grackle were picking at them.

Nothing unusual here yet. I had a flock of black birds fly past my window and walking around my yard. I've had a camera out waiting just in case.

Yes, my husband and I both, and also very dizzy. We have a virus, though. A strange one. Not like the flu. I never had a virus quite like this before.

As for birds, it's been the talk of our town and adjacent areas how we are seeing lots more large predator birds of some sort. I don't know what they are but they look like they might have a wing span of about five feet. A lady at my daughter's school said some of the sightings were of eagles. I have lived here six years now and four years once before and this is the first time I've seen such majestic birds. They have swooped down past my window on a few occasions but were too fast so I missed really getting a good look at them. I never thought I'd see such birds living here in a suburban development in Maryland. At least they seem to be thriving and I hope they continue to, though I admit I'm afraid for cats and small dogs now. These birds are intimidating in size. They are not vultures. Those, I've seen before around here.
Oh and I thought eagles and such were somewhat solitary. Whatever these huge soaring birds are, I saw enough of them over my house to almost constitute a flock. They were circling a lot. They were soaring so high yet still looked huge.

If the government knows anything about all this they are keeping a lid on it. The media cannot be trusted to tell use anything because they are propagandas. I don’t know what is really going on but I haven’t seen anything unusual in my home town. It doesn’t mean I don’t believe birds are not falling to the ground dead, I am opened minded. I don’t think we should be panicking yet. Now if people start dropping to the ground dead, then I will be concern. I do agree we are experiencing unusual cold weather though.
Just my two cents.
