More Arkansas Dead Birds?

 

I caught this on my Facebook page. Thought maybe some of you might want to see what is going on. This incident has apparently taken place today in Conway, Arkansas. If anyone has more information, please comment. It was posted by the meteorologist, Todd Yakoubian.  Can’t help thinking of my Beebe report from 2011:

Also, in Hot Springs:

Freaks me out. Here is a picture of the Conway incident from today:

Something incoming?

*I have been in serious pain lately…fibromyalgia. Just trying to deal with it.*

Found this from this morning…something going to happen? This isn’t entirely normal.

Interesting radar images this AM. Birds seen on radar flying north out of Beebe, Arkansas:

I do not like seeing this. Taken from a weatherman’s twitpic account:

More Dead Birds in Arkansas

While JM and I were going to visit the Outback in Hot Springs last night, we ran across around a dozen dead birds. The birds that were in the sky were flying quite erratically. We decided to go on to the restaurant, and come back later. These birds were on the Garland-Hot Springs County lines. When we came back, around and hour and a half later, the birds were gone and there was a fish-game truck in the vicinity. We did not get a chance to document this, and it looks like the media has lost interest in the issue. Did anyone else see this anomaly? We will never again lose chance to document….sigh. This was on February 1st, 2011.

Bird Strangeness in Beebe, Arkansas

Okay, so JM and I decided to take a trip out to Beebe yesterday to see what is going on with the birds. This is not a far trip or anything…fairly close, actually. This makes us pretty nervous. First thing we did was stop at a gas station to get an exact location of the birds. The attendant said it feels like the end of the world. The citizens there are very nervous, and nobody trusts the government given the whole earthquakes in Guy thing (another story for another blog post.)

I am going to give the observations of myself and JM. Disclaimer…I am not a scientist at all, I am merely offering opinions of JM Ashley and myself.

One of the first things that I noticed was the energy was terribly off. My left ear started ringing as soon as we entered the vicinity of the dead birds. The birds that were alive were behaving strangely. They did not fly much more than a few feet off the ground, and a few groups were flying in circles. The people looked freaked out. When we got to the location with the birds, at first we only saw one on the street. It had physical injuries, BUT it was possibly run over by a car or something. This was very close to a construction site.

One thing to be observed is that the location is very close to the Little Rock Air Force Base. Whether this has anything to with it, I don’t know, merely an observation. There were plenty of military planes flying overhead on our visit.

As we got closer to the construction field, we observed many more birds. Hundreds. I don’t know if the cleanup people missed this or not, but there were plenty withing sight.

Our observations: other than the bird in the road, none of the birds had any recognizable injuries. They were in good condition, cadaver-wise. What is strange is the condition of the bodies. They were not in decay, which means these birds have something terribly wrong OR it happened not on New Years, but in the past couple of days.

JM procured one of the cadavers for further independent testing and observation.

It is our opinion that this was something electromagnetic. Something caused these birds to die, and they didn’t bump into each other (no evidence of physical injuries) and we do not believe it was fireworks. This is an area where there is a lot of shooting, so if noises startled the birds, this would be a most unusual occurrence. There are fireworks every year in Beebe; why would this occur now?

The official explanation is that is was “likely” fireworks. Now, they cannot say that with 100% certainty, but this is their explanation. We don’t buy it.

We took videos and photos. We will be uploading the videos later on today. I will provide the links on this blog.

Read comments from other Arkansans in the newspapers. NOBODY believes the official stories.

More to be posted later today. Thank you for reading.

December 16th Dream

*It was terrible. I woke up in distress.*

I was getting constant phone calls from the area code 216. People there were in danger, and said they needed my help, but the phone calls kept cutting out. One of the callers claimed to be Tiger Woods. Something bad was happening there, but I could not identify what. There were depressed birds all over the place, they were upset about something, and were committing suicide en masse. They would look at me, give out a cry, then kill themselves by flying into the ground or the river. People were living all over the place, the government had them living in makeshift trailers, like in Katrina.

Catastrophic fall in numbers reveals bird populations in crisis throughout the world

The birds of the world are in serious trouble, and common species are in now decline all over the globe, a comprehensive new review suggests today.

From the turtle doves of Europe to the vultures of India, from the bobwhite quails of the US to the yellow cardinals of Argentina, from the eagles of Africa to the albatrosses of the Southern Ocean, the numbers of once-familiar birds are tumbling everywhere, according to the study from the conservation partnership BirdLife International.

Their falling populations are compelling evidence of a rapid deterioration in the global environment that is affecting all life on earth – including human life, BirdLife says in its report, State of The World’s Birds.

The report, released today with an accompanying website at the BirdLife World Conservation Conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina, identifies many key global threats, including the intensification of industrial-scale agriculture and fishing, the spread of invasive species, logging, and the replacement of natural forest with monocultural plantations.

It goes on to suggest that in the long term, human-induced climate change may be the most serious stress.

Based in Cambridge, BirdLife International is a global alliance of conservation organisations working in more than 100 countries and territories which is now the leading authority on the status of birds, their habitats and the issues and problems affecting them.

When brought together, as in its new report, the regional pictures of bird declines combine to present a startling picture of a whole class of living things on a steep downward slope.

A remarkable 45 per cent of common European birds are declining, with the familiar European turtle dove, for example, having lost 62 per cent of its population in the last 25 years, while on the other side of the globe, resident Australian wading birds have seen population losses of 81 per cent in the same period.

Twenty common North American birds have more than halved in number in the last four decades, while in Asia, the millions of white-rumped vultures which once filled the skies have crashed by 99.9 per cent and the species is now critically endangered.

“Many of these birds have been a familiar part of our everyday lives, and people who would not necessarily have noticed other environmental indicators have seen their numbers slipping away, and are wondering why,” said Dr Mike Rands, BirdLife’s chief executive.

All the world’s governments have committed themselves to slowing or halting the loss of biodiversity by 2010, but reluctance to commit what are often trivial sums in terms of national budgets means that this target is almost certain to be missed, according to the report.

“Birds provide an accurate and easy-to-read environmental barometer, allowing us to see clearly the pressures our current way of life are putting on the world’s biodiversity,” Dr Rands said.

“Because these creatures are found almost everywhere on earth, they can act as our eyes and ears, and what they are telling us is that the deterioration in biodiversity and the environment is accelerating, not slowing.

“Effective biodiversity conservation is easily affordable, requiring relatively trivial sums at the scale of the global economy. For example, to maintain the protected area network which would safeguard 90 percent of Africa’s biodiversity would cost less than $1bn a year. Yet in a typical year, the global community provides about $300m.

“The world is failing in its 2010 pledge. The challenge is to harness international biodiversity commitments and ensure that concrete actions are taken now.”
