NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- A weather radar screen doesn't just show the weather, apparently. The National Weather Service in North Little Rock examined a speck on the radar that showed up around the same time hundreds of birds fell out of the sky from alleged trauma on New Year's Eve. Today's THV reporter Lauren Clark talked to Science and Operations Officer Chris Buonanno at the NWS who says that the speck on the picture is definitely not precipitation.
"There are some indications that we're picking up a non-precipitation target. It has some similarities to say, like a collection of birds."
The spot on the radar is estimated to be between 1,300 and 1,400 feet in the air and Buonanno points out it doesn't move like a cloud or rainstorm would.
Most birds fly below 500 feet except during migration. There is no reason to expend the energy to go higher -- and there may be dangers, such as exposure to higher winds or to the sharp vision of hawks. When migrating, however, birds often do climb to relatively great heights, possibly to avoid dehydration in the warmer air near the ground. Migrating birds in the Caribbean are mostly observed around 10,000 feet, although some are found half and some twice that high. Generally long-distance migrants seem to start out at about 5,000 feet and then progressively climb to around 20,000 feet. Just like jet aircraft, the optimum cruise altitude of migrants increases as their "fuel" is used up and their weight declines. Vultures sometimes rise over 10,000 feet in order to scan larger areas for food (and to watch the behavior of distant vultures for clues to the location of a feast). Perhaps the most impressive altitude record is that of a flock of Whooper Swans which was seen on radar arriving over Northern Ireland on migration and was visually identified by an airline pilot at 29,000 feet. Birds can fly at altitudes that would be impossible for bats, since bird lungs can extract a larger fraction of oxygen from the air than can mammal lungs.

Sorry... not good at 'reading' the images above.
Are you saying the yellow colour represents the birds?
if so then there were about 10 miles long and 6 miles wide of birds flying at that time?
Have I read that right?

I smell HAARP, they did say they were going to attempt to move part of the Ionosphere into space at some point (partially) in order to be able to deflect missiles, now if moving the ionosphere further up, can disrupt and down an ICBM, just ask your self what it can do to birds

Before you guys get carried away with the unproven HAARP stuff,
how about something simpler like an air-bursting meteor.

The birds could have simply collided with a warped gravity field created by aircraft of either man made or et origin.
This would explain the blunt trauma as it would be the likely outcome when entering a region of space where the gravity is significantly more dense.
The altered gravity zone could have also attracted the birds mass just as the earth does to us. This would explain why there were so many birds effected.
I am simply trying to eliminate the potential magnetic pole shift theory b/c I would rather believe (hope) we are not doomed.edit on 10-1-2011 by Pepeluacho because: Wording
