UNEXPLAINED: All At Once 5,000 Black Birds Fell Out Of The Sky Over A One Mile Radius Of Arkansas


ASSOCIATED PRESS: Environmental service workers in the US have been picking up the carcasses of about 2,000 red-winged blackbirds that fell dead from the sky in a central Arkansas town. The birds had fallen on Friday night over a one-mile area of Beebe, 40 miles from Little Rock, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area. The workers from US Environmental Services started the clean-up on Saturday, and confirmed the last dead bird was removed at 11am on Sunday morning. Beebe mayor Mike Robertson said workers wore protective suits for the removal as a matter of routine and not out of fear that the birds might be contaminated. He said speculation on the cause of the birds’ deaths is not focusing on disease or poisoning. MORE
