I gave you a star...and then I realized if the birds were trying to escape the winter storm wouldn't they be flying south? Not east?

I believe that if you go look at a current interactive weather map, then you will see that heading east from Arkansas will avoid the freezing temperatures, as the winter weather is moving NE.

EDIT to add map of area affected by winter weather:

I remember when I was a little kid in Georgia and the birds would fly over. For hours into days, the sky would black-out. It seemed like there were more birds then sky. It was such a cool site. Now I live in Florida and there is no reason for them to fly over. I kind of miss seeing that.

And then one day we went to Jaxonville, probably in the winter, and there were Starfish piled on top of each other along the entire beach. That was a bizarre sight. We took a few of them home to Georgia because it was kind of a novel thing, but they rotted pretty quickly and we had to throw them out.
Oh well.

Sorry, that's not actually relevant to this thread, but It felt like an o.k. place to put that story and kind of contribute a little.

Peace Inn.

Depends on how close the epicenter is to Indianapolis. If its close to St Louis or Memphis, your not going feel much at all. If the epicenter is close to Indiana, then you might feel some rumbling, comparable to living close to a train station or airport. Nothing major.

You're right...it is quite entertaining.

the chemtrailers need a break.... there will be 80-90 percent cloudcover for the next 4-5 days, they are trying to hide something

Well, it's been around 18 hours now, and still no earthquake. I don't think the earthquake happens so late after the rainbow lights, so New Madrid is most likely safe now.

coolottie, that's treasure of a web site. I live on the BC West coast. We had a earthquake prep day on Jan 26, 2011. Drop cover and hold. For a while, I've been hearing very low octave sounds, and am frequently dizzy. I didn't realize the areas around St. Helen's and Glacier Park are constantly moving. You would think that the media would be reporting more about this. Thanks for all your dedication in this thread and others. Because of this, I'm getting prepared. If nothing, great, at least I don't have to shopping for a very... long... time. Great work.

Haven't seen any rainbows or flocks of birds lately here in my neck of the woods in Missouri. We did have a small earthquake just a few days ago. Only a 2.5. magnitude at 3.2 miles deep. I'm approx. 15 miles from where it happened and didn't feel a thing.

I've made it to page four and haven't seen a mention of it yet so I'll post the info.

I'm in Arkansas right now. To say the birds have all disappeared is being dramatic. I have been seeing birds. Bluejays, Cardinals, Crows, Hawks, and more. I have not seen any grackles lately. To say the birds are all gone, is not true. On another note, I was at the Red River in Ar the other day and counted 21 dead trout washed up at the shore.

Seriously? What a load of &^%#

Show me scientific sources and I'll take it back.


Agreed. All these years that scientists have not been able to predict earthquakes and all you have to look for is rainbows and birds flying away.


If only it was that easy. This is nothing but pseudoscience nonsense.

I'm not being flippant, here, but have you had your ears checked and mentioned this to a doctor? I assume you have, but there were several medical conditions I can think of that match this.


I didn't realize the areas around St. Helen's and Glacier Park are constantly moving. You would think that the media would be reporting more about this.


It's well known to everyone in the area (or almost everyone) that the place is tectonically active and that St. Helen's could erupt again. In an active area, the ground constantly shakes on a very very tiny scale as magma moves. The reason that they don't report this is that they'd have to devote news space to saying "and the ground moved in the area again today" every single day.

Like a weather forecast, but a lot less interesting.

USGS has an earthquake warning system and a whole raft of tremor tracking station data here:
earthquake.usgs.gov...

As a kid, I thought as long as the birds flew south, things should be ok, all normal, right?

But I think that was before HAARP and all the man made destruction weapons.

I agree we shouldnt be looking at the birds for warnings, weather they are acting strange or not, leaving or not, they have a huge snowstorm going down in the books, they have enough to worry about right now, not the best time to rely on them (I guess as long as theyre still flying?...hmm) . But we shouldnt ignore these warnings earth is giving us. I am not near the madrid but it scares the crap out of me to think that can happen, some of you over there should spend more time stocking up and preparing than debating what, who, when, and where.

That Threat Watch site is so cool, all in one, perfect. Thanks


I hope this doesnt happen but if it does I wish you guys all the best in being safe and protected

I don't know if this has been pointed out before in this thread but the "strange rainbow" is just iridescent clouds, they aren't even a rare event and have nothing to do with earthquakes

Nahahahahahahahahaha, yo big baby pull up the dipey and take the good with the bad. You know what happens on here when you don't think the post through before laying it out for our viewing pleasure.

Here's some science on this.

I looked into the patterns of bird flocks earlier this year because I wondered why our phone lines had thousands of grackles or starlings (not often in mixed groups) -- but only in certain areas. It occurred to me that I'd like to map the locations and see how the flock patterns changed over the year, since these are pesky birds (but I don't like that the solution to "pesky bird" is "Kill the varmit.") So I began to look things up.

You can get the full PDFs on scholar.google.com... so I'm just going to cite author and study here (you can look it up if you're interested.)

These "pesky birds" spend February through June in the breeding period, when all their energy goes to raising chicks. They move away from the breeding areas in winter and form large colonies or roosts (the period is January through February) and up to 10 million birds may be in any single "winter roost." And yes, grackles DO migrate, with females migrating farther from the nesting areas than males do. (RA Dolbeer - Journal of Field Ornithology, 1982 )

A hunt through this paper (elibrary.unm.edu... ) shows that the birds are up north (New Jersey for this study) in the summer (so they fly northward in late spring) and hang around there till it starts getting cold, when they pack up and go south.

There are actually five periods when the birds move about in large groups. This talks about the Red-Wing Blackbird, often found in these groups or as separate groups of "black birds" flying around the skies in large numbers:

The annual cycle of the Red-wing was divided into five seasonal periods
1) reproductive( 25 Apri|-31 July), (2) postreproductive(1 August-15 October), (3) fall migration (16 October-9 December), (4) winter roost (10 December-20 February), and (5) spring migration-prereproductive (21 February-24 April).
(RA Dolbeer - Journal of Field Ornithology, 1982 )


I also looked up papers about animals moving around uneasily before earthquakes. A geologist who did a study (an interesting approach -- used stray/lost pets recorded as a way of seeing if animals were running away or behaving strangely) didn't find anything to support the idea that animals act strangely before earthquakes:
pcwww.liv.ac.uk...

The original idea came from a report about an earthquake in China, but the information is based on what people were saying and not photos or other "less personal" data (such as photos of sheep running away taken on that date): tao.cgu.org.tw...


....and just for fun, some pictures on a BBS showing patterns made by flocks of starlings (if you catch them at the right moment the patterns look like rubber ducks or seals or other amusing things):
www.cassiopaea.org...

There's more, of course, but these "trash birds" are understudied. I'd like to do a little work on them later this year if I can get together a citizen science team.

I have seen the Doc, and I don't think you're being flippant, Byrd. I've lived on the west coast all my life, known we live on the ring of fire. I really never paid it much attention 'cause the activity is always far off in the distance. Now, since I've been shown this site, ATS I mean, now the distance isn't so far away. My view has gone from a macro to a micro view. This site is great, Lately I'm looking outside with different eyes. And that's never a bad thing.
