Birds likely flew into power lines


www.theadvertiser.com

LABARRE — A swarm of 500 birds found dead on a Louisiana highway earlier in January apparently were startled off their nighttime roosts and flew into power lines, wildlife experts say.

State Wildlife Veterinarian Jim LaCour told The Advocate that the carcasses found in Pointe Coupee Parish tested negative for toxins, viruses and bacterial infections. Many of the birds showed signs of trauma and were found in an area directly underneath power lines near a railroad track.

"We had a new moon, so it was very dark," LaCour said. "It was windy and there were trees nearby the birds could have used for roosting."

LaCour said it was possible the birds were startled by a passing train — and then hit the power lines.

Really? Wow. Startled birds flying into power lines and with enough force to kill them.

I know they think we are all stupid, but do they think we are that stupid?

What are the stories coming out of the other areas of incident?

We have all these cases of die-offs around the globe, but people are too occupied with their poor economic situation or collapsing government to care about something like this. Sure, animals have die offs all the time, but not in the quantities, or similar incidents without good reason. So far, I am only hearing of blunt force trauma. If that is the cause of death in all or most cases, or at least reported to be, then they are lying and don't have a clue, or lying to cover up something they know is significant. Either way, we are being lied to as usual.

I am sorry but i am having a really hard time believing that claim where i live i have seen birds from large birds to small birds fly straight throw the power lines without dying and what 500 birds flew into power lines?



How can these fake experts continue to go on lying like this?


Edited: Some of the birds i have seen also rest on the power lines without getting fired like a chicken.

Good thread OP

Even if they all flew toward the power lines some would end up going over them, some between them and some below. Yea they think we are stupid - I'm not buying it!

All 500 flew into power lines? This is really getting ridiculous. Do they have video footage of this happening?

Where is their proof? They have no videos or witnesses to these die offs, yet they want us to believe their cover stories hook line and sinker.

500 birds flew into power lines and died even though they stand on them all the time eh?

well one of two things are happening. A experts are slowly getting dumber or B birds are slowing getting dumber. its one of the two. Next thing you know they are going to find 500 small notes written in chicken scratch indicating its a mass suicide. with experts saying it would seem birds are joining bird cults.

Sadly, there are a large majority who are going to accept this excuse.

Most reports I have seen cite blunt force trauma. Would an autopsy be able to tell the difference from blunt force in flight as cause versus the blunt force impact with the ground?

Have you heard about the two hundred cattle in Wisconsin that died from sweet potatoes?

Did he actually say this in public?


"We had a new moon, so it was very dark" LaCour said.


and


LaCour said it was possible the birds were startled by a passing train


The bigger question is, why is LaCour in charge?

I s'pose if they're giving the official cause of 'blunt trauma' then they HAVE to come up with a possible scenario.
Because after all, we'll have no HAARP or magnetic field disruption or CME eruption talk!
Too scary! Too many implications.

Man, this world is a gigantic three-ring circus, being run by a bunch of bozos! So I guess they might as well continue to entertain us!

I wont be accepting this excuse its just nuts 500 birds committing suicide.. i see them all the time landing and siting on the power lines here ..its just a cover story there is something going on but they wont tell us..

I do know mold will kill cattle i raise them but "It is likely that a mycotoxin from moldy sweet potato" that might have killed off a few but not all 200 at once just another cover story for the masses

Maybe a lot more information is needed to assess this

If 10000 startled birds with poor night vision flew through a crowded transmission corridor in the dark with buffetting winds and sleet/snow blowing and 500 died from hitting the lines, poles and towers it's not quite as sensational. I've seen birds dead from hitting objects in the dark before but not in these numbers.

Need more info

State Wildlife Veterinarian Jim LaCour is full of it. He's making a wild guess.

I guess the dead fish that died were also startled at night and swam in to a bunch of electric eels and were electrocuted to death!

Why would you say "all 500"? What leads you to believe there are less than say 10,000 birds that were roosting? 500 out of 10000 would only be a small fraction.

And sure it's speculative, they admit that and probably don't give a hoot if you believe them or not. Have you got a better explanation?

Normally when birds are standing on power lines it's because they can see where they're going and land there on purpose. I had some huge glass doors on my patio that were invisible to the birds and they killed themselves all the time by flying into something they couldn't see (in my case the glass).

If they couldn't see the power line because it was dark, why is it so hard to believe the same thing might happen with the power line as with the glass?

...Because they show signs of trauma and not electrocution?

We're not talking about a couple of birds, we're talking about FIVE HUNDRED. That's why.

I just said I'm not so quick to reject it and I've not heard you or anyone else come up with a better explanation.

Even though I'll probably get flamed I'm going to say HAARP.

Here's an anomaly showing up on radar
www.youtube.com...

It can't be that the birds got startled all at once and showed up on radar, cause it turns out they were all dead in the exact same place

If they couldn't see the power line because it was dark, why is it so hard to believe

I'm going to have to disagree with some of your logic here.
1. When birds are standing on power lines, they are not going anywhere. They are as you said. just standing. they could do this with their eyes closed.

2. The reason they don't die while standing on the power line in the daylight, is because they are not grounded. The electrical current has nowhere to go through them, so it does not go through them.

3. Even if they can't see while they're flying, just because it is dark. They are still not going to be grounded.

Yes its possible they can get electrocuted from the transformer, but all of em flying into the transformer, at the exact same time, before it blows, and then apparently no evidence of it blowing afterwards, because the official statement claims that they hit the lines? I am not a professional electrician, and I could be wrong, but I feel as though I am not in this statement. If you can prove me wrong, then please do. However, I find your reasoning of them being electrocuted at night as opposed to the daytime quite far-fetched.
