After thinking about it for a while and swimming around ATS, I wonder if the murder of these birds has any sort of connection with the massive
reduction in the bee population?
Maybe not, but it is suspicious to me anyway.

Actually, it has been asked about fracking before, when I reported the 'Strange Sky-Noise Phenomena'
The last I remember, there may have been a fracking sight in the region, but not in the local area. I think it was located some 95-98 miles away.
That's a good base question to ask and get out of the way or identify the source. In this case, I believe it can be ruled out, with a fairly high % of
certainty, as not being related to the events around here.

Thanks for posting the video you made.
Where do you live in Tennessee? It is not normal in this area, in the foothills, this time of year. Tennessee is a state with a wide range of
topographical variation. What could be normal for you (3 hours away from me) may not be the norm for other areas with differing landscapes/

Yes, there are lots of things that can influence change in the bahovior of wild life. While the area I live in does have it's rural areas, the
specific place I live is considered suburban. There are many trees in the area, but there is not lots of undergrowth in the specific area where I
witnessed some of the strange behavior. In fact, the groung below the trees, in the woods, is much like you'd find in a 'park' setting.
I have a clear view of the area from my office, which has allowed me to see these things as they happen. There may have been a predator, such as a
snake, in the area. There was not, however, any other predator in the area at the time.
If the resulting behavior was produced by a cat, there would need to be several cats and they would need to be on the prowl constantly throughout the
day. That's because the sheer number of the birds was much to vast to be responding to a single predator's threat.
They just covered way too much area to be affected by a single predator. If there were multpile predators causing the situation, then I believe I
would have easily spotted at least one of them, as the workers and myself were constantly watching the area and behavior throughout the day.
The odd behavior and subsequent mass-die off seem very probable to be link in some manner. I don't think a predator could do that... unless they have
evolved some new hunting tactic, wherein they scare the prey so much that they just drop out of the sky... kind like a fainting goat with wings.

Might have been someone at Bush's Beans plant tooting for relief!
The workers here all admitted that they have never seen anything like what's been going on recently. They all live within about 45miles of the shop. I
told a couple of them some of the questions and suggesstions being asked and they agreed that they would be asking the same things, had they not
witnessed it with their own eyes and ears... I would too.

Ah, they have nothing to fear, personally, I am only demolishing the trees in other countries, haha... I won't mess with their oaks, walnuts, maples,
or hickory tree houses.... they must have gotten word from distant relatives that I an clear-cutting their neighborhoods!
P.S. I am not really clear-cutting anything, anywhere... and the exotics I use are not products of clear-cutting efforts.

The last time I heard it and was certain it was the same thing I had heard before was several months ago. However, I thought I was hearing it several
days ago. I couldn't be 100% sure though, because it didn't happen at the same time, didn't last nearly as long, and the tones were not heard in the
The earliest I have heard it is @ 4.00a-5.00a and lasting a few hours. The noise from a few days ago happened around 12a and lasted less than
I also heard a similar noise around 2p, several days ago.
