    shocked2 Thousands of birds fall from the sky in Arkansas

    Just before folks in Beebe rang in the New Year, many witnessed an uncanny resemblance to the Hitchcock movie "The Birds." About 2,000 black birds fell from the sky off Windwood Drive, leaving quite the mess to clean up.

    Folks Today's THV spoke with initially thought the birds were poisoned because they are what they call a nuisance around this time every year, but they are surprised to hear it is more of a mystery.
    Stephen Bryant recalls, "Millions, millions fly over every night. You look up at the sky and it's just black and then last night at about 10:30 I came out here and saw a bird drop."
    In a matter of hours on New Years Eve thousands of birds fell from the sky to their death.

    This is kind of creepy.. It reminds of the when it rained fish in the UK.

    I am really curious to know what caused this...

    Wow, that's weird. I hope they figure out the cause.

    AGFC ornithologist Karen Rowe said that strange events similar to this one have occurred a number of times across the globe. "Test results usually were inconclusive, but the birds showed physical trauma and that the flock could have been hit by lightning or high-altitude hail," Rowe said.

    Another scenario may have been that New Year's Eve revelers shooting off fireworks in the area may have startled the birds from their roost. The birds may have died from stress.
    Sounds pretty plausible.

    Dying from stress and trauma sounds sad, even if it's a bird...

    They were shooting a sequel to "Day After Tomorrow."

    why must you make everything political? 1000's of birds dropping out of the sky and you take a jab at liberals?!?! Tell ya what.... when someone dies of cancer or 1000s of fish wash up dead on the banks of a river I'll blame conservatives.
