If a few thousand birds fall out of the sky dead, it’s sort of freaky. Authorities have blamed it on fireworks or power lines. What they have failed to explain is why this has happened in several different locations in the past few days. I mean, we’ve had power lines for many years, and fireworks for many more years. Does it seem likely that we would go for so long without an occurrence such as this, then have several in quick succession?
Nah, I don’t think so. I have no idea what really happened, but I am not buying those lame explanations. And I admit, I am really curious. Many of the fish they examined seemed to have died of internal injuries which led to blood clots. There are reports of fish and shellfish dying in huge numbers, too. Do we often have such mass deaths of a particular animal? It certainly is odd.

I really do not buy the power line thing–not just ordinary power lines, anyway–or this would be happening all the time. Maybe some kind of unusual radio waves could have interfered with the birds’ natural navigational mechanism? But would that cause blood clots? And what about the crabs and the fish?
Too many questions, and the answers don’t fit.
