Hi
Sorry this is off topic but if you are like me you love all animals.

This has me scared considering the first incident I heard of happened at 11:30 PM on New Years Eve. That was in Arkansas and now many other parts of the world all in just a week or so. The thing that bothers me most is that there is very little of this covered on the news.

Hi Marissa, I agree with you, I love bird photography, and even the thought of all these birds dying makes me wonder, it is just to much of a coincidence for it to be normal occurance like some are saying on the news, even fish are dying by the thousands, something is not right if you ask me.

I don't for a moment think it is end times, like some have said, but it is unsettling for sure.

I think this is the most important quote from the article you linked to:

"this whole thing has people everywhere paying more attention to the mass deaths in wildlife being witnessed all over the world"

It's been going on for a long time, probably because humans have been destroying the planets ecosystems. We've just started paying attention to it in the last few days.

I agree Louise, but the thing that I find hard to believe is why thousands of birds would all fall from the sky at one time. I could understand if they were poisoned and ate at the same time but even then they would not all fall in unison. Different body weights and amounts of energy used before the poison hit them would scatter it out. I live in the country and was watching the birds today thinking what would I do if thousands of them just dropped on top of the house and field at one time? I can't recall seeing one fall in my entire life. I have seen them collide with windows and drop but not just drop. I believe I would have a meltdown if it were to happen on top of me.

Actually, the article doesn't say they all dropped out of the sky at one time, only that residents went outside on the morning of New Year's Day to find them dead. They had apparently all died during the night, which allows a range of quite a few hours.

I'm not saying we should ignore these things that are happening, just that we should be realistic about what's going on here. Humans are damaging the planet's ecosystems more and more every day. The birds and the fish are like the canaries they used to take down the coal mines. We humans should treat them as an early warning system. Smaller creatures are already dying because of the damage we do every day. If we carry on the way we are, it won't be long before our planet's ecosystems are so damaged it won't be able to support the nearly 7 billion humans currently living on it.
