Experts: Don't Worry About Dead Birds

Since New Year's we have heard reports of the mass and sudden, and not so easily explained, deaths of birds and fish, and every day following new reports of mass deaths, we get mass announcements from official experts telling us not to worry.

We also get announcements from non-experts telling us to most definitely worry, because, when birds fall by the thousands dead from the sky, and when fish wash up by the millions dead on the shore, that is a sign.

I dismiss the non-experts, and I don't know if the experts are right or not. There could be many reasons why these birds and fish are dying. Could be the severe weather brought on by global warming. Could be the fish and birds were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Could be anything.

Sign of the Times: Fallen Birds

End Times or Something Else?

The sight of thousands of birds falling from the sky and lying on the street is enough to put the chill on people. Is this the opening scene in a real life horror movie?

The Associated Press reports that about 2,000 red-winged blackbirds fell dead from the sky in the central Arkansas town Beebe,. A wooded area in the town has been a roost for several hundred thousand red-winged blackbirds for the past several years.

On New Year's Eve night, Friday, the birds fell dead over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that zone..
