Just thought I'd share...

ETA: hahaha I just went to check my feeders...they're empty! Smart little hummer was just letting me know!

Not wrong about the birds. I am driving my car and if i see a bird or more on the road you normally assume they
will get out of the way with plenty of time, but lately i have to slow down completely and sometimes they dont even fly away......... They walk away lol.

I drive all the time. My gf and I regularly go for rides in the country. We noticed about a month ago that birds in the road weren't flying off like the usually do. I always slow down for animals of all types but these birds, on occasion, have made me come to almost a complete stop right on them before flying away. Also I have seen a lot of dead birds on the road, apparently from those drivers who don't slow down.

Also after telling my gf about this thread she says that the other day a finch or something was on a car next to ours and as she walked up to our car she got so close she says she could have touched the bird before it flew away. Weird!

Now I'm wondering if something isn't going on.

I too have noticed the birds in the road that don't fly away.

The rabbits here will let you walk up to them and almost touch them. This is not normal...

I was reading your post(s) yesterday and I wanted to add to the interesting data: in this week alone the Ft.Worth animal shelter has increased to over 600 animals that were picked up. They are keeping in three locations, and lowering adoption fees to half of regular price, they are trying to avoid euthanizing this massive amount. The spokesperson for the shelter stated that this is usually the busier time of year, but that this is very abnormal.
And then on another side note: I have always noticed the birds acting all silly in spring-they are in love, and or thinking about making babies. They will always act like a silly person in love, diving in front of moving cars, etc., however, the "spring fling" should be drawing to a close, and it sounds like an extra dose of unusual activity. Also, there have been increased earthquakes, and increased in size. If you live somewhere that has experienced an earthquake, or even felt it from over 140 miles, then include that info with your comment.

I heard what sounded like a frog farting while I was watering out in my backyard last night. It actually sounded more like someone stepped on a duck. There are no Ducks in my backyard though. ~$heopleNation

i have been noticing that birds wait for cars to almost totally ****ing run them over until flying away.

I seriously thought that was just the birds around my area, I kid you not...I have noticed this over the past month or two, and when you said that in your post, I got goose bumps...

Lol, well, like the OP said, they are just being friendlier and have no fear latley

I LOVE humming birds and just kept saying "hi" to her, and then wanted to pet her so bad, and she happened to let me, so I held her and pet her for a while..

The Bat, I named "Godfrey", was basically the same thing, except he was flying around the house for a while, making me laugh like a hyena, before he settled down and let me catch him for a little hello...

Not sure why, but a bat flying around in the house made us laugh hysterically, kinda like the squirrel on the guys back in christmas vacation.....

I have not notice anything different about the animals here although I'm not positive the birds chirping in the wee hours is anything unusual. Perhaps no one noticed before because we never used to be such poor sleepers? Perhaps the computer, the tv,dvd, psp,wi and all this technology means we sleep less at night and notice/hear more than we did before during those hours?

With regard to birds on the road I do know that there are more roads all the time, making it more dangerous for any animal to cross whereby limiting it's natural habitat should it choose not to brave the crossing. More roads, more cars on the road all speeding, refusing to slow down, (isn't that what we are taught when we learn to not slow down for animals, better to hit one than cause an accident.)

Some dogs bark all the time and some more than others. It is one of the ways they communicate. It could be they picked up a scent from a new dog in the neighbourhood, a new cat or just a dead decaying bird on the wind and are excitedly telling each other. To sum up, nothing here is unusual animal behaviour. Even allowing humans closer is not unusual as their own habitats shrink they will be ever more used to our presence and handouts.

If however, I saw all the cows in the paddock slowing walking in anti-clockwise circles with their tales in their mouth, all the squirrels in a cheerleader pyramid or the birds tucking themselves under the windscreen wiper blades to hitch a free ride I'd be inclined to think there was something up.

I can definetly relate to this one here........I live in Alaska and we are going into the time of year we get the most daylight, but lately I been hearing morning chirps in the evening hours which is definetly out of the ordinary here because even when we don't realize the times of day it is the birds NEVER forget..........hrmmmmmm

Along these lines, we have a resident Mocking bird that won't shut up. The wife and I joke about it cause my cat and the bird are both screaming for no real reason we can see. It is squawking away non-stop all day and night above our house on our chimney which echo's into our house.

I have been so busy with work lately, that I haven't notice very much except for a mocking bird in our area, that has been at it for over a week now. Very irritating. I didn't think anything of it until I saw this thread.

Very very loud and non-stop

Actually the mention of birds just standing there waiting in the middle of the road reminded me of what happened to me and my best mate the other day.

We live in sydney aus, and anyways he was driving along at the speed limit and a bird basically just stood in the middle of the road and at the last second turned and look at the car headed in it's direction and did not even attempt to fly off or run out of the way yes he hit the bird he did feel bad about it but we also both expected it to fly off away from danger.....i didn't think much of it until now, perhaps i'm going crazy too but the animals are certainly acting strange these days.

there were some deer roaming around my neighborhood the other day, and I live no where near any large wooded areas.

speaking of synchronicity I've noticed that myself and many others are more frequently becoming aware of coincidences and mindf*cks. In fact, earlier today I learned what the term "synchronicity" meant for the first time.

(Actually, no one can help me with this...)

My cat has been pacing, and paranoid, and pacing, and distracted, and pacing, and.....

This has been going on non stop for about the last 4 hours. I think I have not seen anything quite like this from him, and he is 8 yrs old. I live in the US MidWest, up northward. So right now, it is 7:32pm Central Time.

But see, I'm thinking it's nothing, it will blow over, but I'd rather put this here for the record. (Just in case!)

I'm always skeptical, but now that someone's posted a thread about it, I feel it's time to join.

Lately, dogs all around the neighborhood are barking more than usual.
It's been going on a few months, but it's more than I remember it being when I first arrived where I am.
The dogs will bark late at night at what is seemingly nothing.
We have two big dogs here - a pitbull, and another big dog I'm not too sure about.
Anyway, there will be times late at night where they'll both get up off of the couch and dart out the back door with low, terrible-sounding growls that send shivers up my spine. (Especially Brutus, the pit, and yes, we always have the back doors open so they can roam the big backyard as they please and rest inside when they choose.)
They'll dash all the way out to the furthest, darkest part of the backyard, and start to run around growling and whining.
At these times, I'll be hearing the dogs around the neighborhood barking as well. And there are a lot of dogs.

But before you speculate that they're only barking at each other - they have the dogs next door they fight and bark with, face-to-face. ( Or face-fence-face
) They have some kind of agreement to take their frustration out on each other for 3 minutes or so by attacking the fence furiously, and just going back to whatever. They don't just bark out at the other dogs in the neighborhood.
The thing that worries me, is that they seem to know something may be there, but once they run outside, it bothers them immensely that they can't see what it is, but they search intently, growling and whining like there's no mistaking it.

Another strange thing that happened recently.
There was a bird the other day that I felt a strange feeling about.
It was about 2AM and I was on the back patio with the lights and everything on. There are multiple ceiling fans on the roof in different places. The bird flew from the backyard into the patio and perched onto a fan-blade of the nearest ceiling fan, staring directly at me, but moving and hopping about the other fan-blades.
I would get closer to it, but it wouldn't freak out enough to fly off - just hop away or do a little glide to another area close by that it could see me from. At the time, I didn't pay TOO much mind to it. I just thought maybe it was a stupid bird that was sick or something.
But, the next night, sure enough, the same thing happened.

I'm not the only one that's seen it, either.

I don't know if it's significant - I just felt strange at 2AM with a bird staring at me and being somewhat of a stalker.

Your bird experience made me think of Edgar Allan Poe and The Raven. Well, right when I posted before, then my cat went and laid down. But he is near me, and acts vigilant. I truly believe animals have radar that many people don't, and I sounded kinda dismissive before ("its nothing") but it is -not- nothing, it means -something- , but what. Vee shall see.

You must come to this persons aid as soon as possible...

Hello people, I have decided to post you some information on something that is, at this present moment in time, terrifying me.

Over the last few months I have noticed a large increase in the amount of Squirrels we have around our estate. Now, I know what you might be doing and please, bear with me here. Since December last year the Squirrel population seems to have increased ten fold. I know that they are cute and, at the beginning, it was quite good to see all of these little guys running around. Now it is not good. I, and a couple of other people have noticed that they are getting a bit, um, violent. You know, moree aggressive than they ought to be. We're all running a bit scared around here and the local council has said it will be dealt with, but they aren't actually doing anything and they won't unless the problem spreads inside our homes. Incidentally one of my neighbours had some nesting in their loft, but of course after that was dealt with (a week and a half later after she called) nothing else was done for the rest of us,

We're wondering about taking the matter into our own hands but I'm the only one with something against that: I don't think I could handle hurting something so small and fluffy. I mean I'm over six foot tall but still, there are gentle giants.

Does anyone have anything that they would like to share, you know, to help out with this problem? I will take any comments on board.

There was a thread on this subject around 3 - 4 weeks ago. People are noticing strange behavior in wild animals, especially birds.

I can vouch for the fact that the birds that spend the spring in our trees before heading north are acting ditzy. They sit in the grass and my cats just walk up and catch them. We have had a herd of mule deer take up residence around our property, and they follow me around as I walk a distance, of course, but they seem like they want to come over and say hello. Mule deer around here are not used to people, it's a very sparsely-populated area, so for them to even get close enough for me to see them in detail is weird. Naturally I am delighted because they are large and beautiful, but it is odd.

The birds are stupid and aren't taking care of themselves properly. The deer have lost their fear. Perhaps there is something going on with our magnetic field which is throwing the birds off, because they rely on it for migration. Same thing with deer.

I have also noticed birds that sing during the day are now singing all night long, which is strange. Same bird song, so it's not different birds.

I keep thinking about the Schumann Resonance, which is the vibration of the earth in cycles per second:

Supposedly, we are now around 12 Hz, after thousands of years at 7.8. Theoretically, when it reaches 13 Hz, the earth will reverse its poles and/or actually reverse the direction in which it spins. I'm not sure that's true, because if we were so close to the 13 Hz stopping point, we would be rotating much slower.

Something is definitely different, however. I guess, we need to keep our eyes on the animals.

I have tried to keep up with the reversal theories and I just can't nail it down. It seems like everyone sees the pole reversal differently and no-one can agree on what or how it will happen. The only thing most agree on is that it has happened many times in the past and it is way overdue.

My own personal observations suggest that it will flip, is flipping now and will continue to flip for many years to come until it settles into the new polarity. I propose that these flips happen occasionally (every million years?) and sometimes the field returns to north at the north pole after wandering around the globe with several weak north and south poles similar to what is seen on the sun.

The pole shifts are identified by magnetic material that was molten and took on the direction of polarity at that time. If the poles shift around between molten events there is no record and if the polarity returns to its original position after wavering for a time it would not reflect a shift for that period which is why I think this pole shift is so far overdue. I think the shift has happened more recently than we can identify from rock because it might not be as predictable as people think.

That said, I also think that the Earth will not spin the other way. The amount of momentum built up by the planet and moon cannot be stopped and then powered back the other way without an equally strong outside force. The polarity can pull the planet out of tilt over time, but I cant see how polarity can flip the world and hold it upside down without an outside force influencing it. Either way momentum will carry the Earth in the same direction and it will not stop spinning.

So I wonder if the poles flip and the Earth stays on it axis, maybe with a slightly larger or smaller wobble, what effects will be seen? Obvious effects have already been noticed such as the positive (North) prominence in the antarctic and weakening field strength allowing more stray particles through the atmosphere. It is possible for some of those gamma rays to kill important brain functions in lesser developed brains. Bird and other animal navigation will be affected for a long time probably leading to less migration and a changing of breeding habits.

As for Schumann resonance being an indicator, I would agree that it makes a good indicator for a higher frequency vibration leading to a pole shift. I liken it to a runaway effect where once the vibration is started it continues to bounce off its walls and increase in frequency over time until something cannot handle the vibrations and there is a major failure. I don't think it will be a physical pole shift as much of a resonant shift. I think once the poles begin to weaken and shift to other areas in a multi-pole configuration the Schumann resonance will start to cancel itself out as waves no longer line up and follow each other around the waveguide. Since the Earth is not hollow and rock can retain resonance longer than air it will naturally return to the normal resonance when the poles return to north-south orientation regardless of north being up or down.

Just my 2 cents.
