Maybe this kind of thing freaked the pigeons out. Some radar type interference.

Military, industry sonar harms whales: IWC report
Sonar used by the military to spot enemy submarines is to blame for increasing cases of whales being stranded on beaches and dying, the scientific
committee of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) has said.
The IWC report adds weight to theories that sonar harms the giant sea mammals, a hypothesis that has been disputed by the military and by the oil and
gas industry, which uses the technology to search for energy reserves.
HA! I just had a vision of a electric car advocate trying to explain to Cheney the
benefits of solar power.
