Thousands of Dead Birds Fall from Sky in Town For Second New Year’s Eve in a Row

Updated to reflect thousands, not hundreds of birds confirmed
Updated again to include link to millions of dead fish washing up in Norway

Pretty spooky… remember aflockalypse last year? It’s ba-ack!

Fox News reports-
Hundreds of Dead Birds Fall from Sky in Town For Second New Year’s Eve in a Row
“Blackbirds have fallen dead from the sky in a central Arkansas town for the second New Year’s Eve in a row. KATV showed a radar image that it said showed a large mass over Beebe a few hours before midnight Saturday. The Little Rock television station reported that hundreds of birds had died. Beebe animal control worker Hearst Taylor told KATV the reason for the bird deaths isn’t yet known. Last year, fireworks were blamed for the deaths of thousands of birds. It wasn’t immediately clear if year-end celebrations are again to blame. Beebe police imposed an impromptu fireworks ban Saturday night. Biologists said last year’s kill was caused by the birds being rousted from their roosts and flying into homes, cars, telephone poles and each other.”

ABC reports-
Dead Blackbirds Fall Again in Ark. Town
“Thousands of dead blackbirds rained down on a town in central Arkansas last New Year’s Eve after revelers set off fireworks that spooked them from their roost, and officials were reporting a similar occurrence Saturday as 2012 approached. Police in Beebe said dozens of blackbirds had fallen dead, prompting officers to ban residents from shooting fireworks Saturday night. It wasn’t immediately clear if fireworks were again to blame, but authorities weren’t taking a chance.”

More dead animals washing up

Oh how His creation is groaning!

Illinois officials report major fish kill on Little Wabash River
“Officials with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Illinois EPA are investigating the source of a major fish kill along the Little Wabash River in White County. Local sportsman Jack Emery of rural Carmi said he first started hearing about dead fish appearing in the Little Wabash a few weeks ago. However, in the past few days, the number of dead fish has exploded into the thousands.”

More at link. No cause is found as yet.

Thousands of dead birds wash ashore at Wasaga Beach
Thousands of dead birds have flooded the shores of Georgian Bay in a scene that locals compared to the devastation from an oil spill. Dead loons, ducks and seagulls covered “every foot” of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park’s shorelines on Saturday, said local Faye Ego, who walks her dog there daily. “It’s like when you see the oil slicks,” Ego said. “It turns your stomach. It’s awful.” Between 5,000 and 6,000 dead waterfowl are scattered along a 3-kilometre stretch near Wasaga Beach, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Peter Leon.”

Wasaga Beach is on the shores of Georgian Bay, Ontario, north of Toronto. Wabash River is in southern IL at the border of Illinois and Indiana. Neither is close to the other. Both remain a mystery as yet as to a cause of the kills.

More animal deaths: fish in China, saiga antelope in Kazakhstan

BBC News reports: Mystery over mass antelope deaths in Kazakhstan
A mystery disease has killed more than 12,000 saiga antelope in Kazakhstan. Conservationists are warning that the mass deaths could spell disaster for the saiga, which is already an endangered species. The figure could account for up to a quarter of the global population of the species. “No one can figure out what’s happened. We see dead animals concentrated in a certain area.” A lung disease may be to blame. “The government is baffled.” It is noted in the video that this phenomenon happened in another district, “where a strange white fog was seen.”

In China yesterday, wholesale death on a large scale. Here is news, Google translated from Chinese: “Jiaxing City, about 2.5 millions kg of fish aquatic products wholesale death”
“The day before yesterday morning, is located in Jiaxing Economic Development Zone, integrated logistics park’s aquatic products wholesale market, almost all of the fishmongers have suffered heavy losses – they just wholesale to the number of sudden mass mortality of fish. Even more surprising is that the same group of fish, the river side of the river with the market almost all the deaths raised deposit, with the water the fish are kept safe and sound support.” The translation seems to be saying that all the fish in the fishmongers’ tanks died.  Apparently, as fishmongers arrived to their stalls, they saw that all the fish were dead. “said the fish market in the large-scale emergence of unnatural death. Police rushed to the aquaculture market.” Further, “After the accident, the environmental protection department of Jiaxing City staff quickly rushed to the scene, taking the water samples for testing, yesterday, the reporter learned that, after testing, the environmental protection department did not find water contamination.”

There are also unconfirmed reports of sparrows dead in a Chinese village too, but the video is in Chinese and I can’t translate that.

Here is a Google Map of the animal deaths. I can’t vouch for its complete accuracy, but I believe it does show a close-enough picture of what is going on. When you see the map, you’ll know.

Flock of dead birds found in TN; pole shift is happening

In addition to dead bird kills discovered in central Sweden and northern Italy (and in addition to Arkansas, Kentucky and Louisiana), today some were found in Tennessee.

Flock of dead birds found in TN
“Now, more that 100 dead birds were recently found in Wilson County, causing the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to investigate. A resident notified the agency Tuesday afternoon after he spotted dozens of dead birds along Highway 70 north in Lebanon a few days ago.“It’s kind of a strange, odd thing. It plays into some of the things that have been happening in other places,” said Lt. Jim Hooper of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. TWRA officials found 120 dead blackbirds in the Spring Creek area when they investigated the situation on Wednesday.“We searched the adjoining fields and everywhere else, and there are no other birds except in this one very localized area,” said Hooper. “The birds have definitely been dead 5 or 6 days. “Over the past week, several hundred different black birds have turned up dead in at least four other states. But the question of exactly how these birds turned up dead in Lebanon could remain a mystery.”

It is well established now that something weird is happening. Not only birds are turning up dead, but fish, too. New Zealand had a fish kill this week, dead fish “as far as the eye could see” washed up. Also in Chesapeake MD, Volusia County FL, and Sarnia Ontario. So the question is, are there scientific or biblical explanations for these? First the scientific.

On Dec 24, 2010, Scientific American asked “Why is the north magnetic pole racing toward Siberia?”
“The North Magnetic Pole (NMP) drifts from year to year as geophysical processes within Earth change. For more than 150 years after Ross’s measurement its movement was gradual, generally less than 15 kilometers per year. But then, in the 1990s, it picked up speed in a big way, bolting north–northwest into the Arctic Ocean at more than 55 kilometers per year. If it keeps going it could pass the geographic north pole in a decade or so and carry on toward Siberia. But why?”

The article continues with scientific explanation as to why the MP drifts, but suffice to say, they are not really sure. And that the drift has picked up speed lately is of real perplexity to them. That the NMP is moving has real-world consequences. One is, that the “Shift of Earth’s magnetic north pole impacts Tampa airport.”

“Scientists say the magnetic north pole is moving toward Russia and the fallout has reached — of all places — Tampa International Airport.  The airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to repaint the numeric designators at each end and change taxiway signage to account for the shift in location of the Earth’s magnetic north. The Federal Aviation Administration required the runway designation change to account for what a National Geographic News report described as a gradual shift of the Earth’s magnetic pole at nearly 40 miles a year toward Russia because of magnetic changes in the core of the planet.”

Did you know,  “Birds can ‘see’ the Earth’s magnetic field
“It has been debated for nearly four decades but no one has yet been able to prove it is chemically possible. Now good evidence suggests that birds can actually “see” the lines of the Earth’s magnetic field. Klaus Schulten of the University of Illinois, proposed forty years ago that some animals – including migratory birds – must have molecules in their eyes or brains which respond to magnetism. The problem has been that no one has been able to find a chemical sensitive enough to be influenced by Earth’s weak geomagnetic field.”

Birds use this magnetic field to migrate. From the same article:

“But how could this influence the direction taken by a migrating bird? Birds appear to orientate at dusk, and cryptochromes form their pair of free radicals when “activated” by the blue light typical of dusk.”

Birds use the magnetic field to navigate, the field is moving as evidenced by the NMP drift, and now birds are dying, Are the two items related? Seems like they could be.

A biblical response comes from Zephaniah and Hosea. In Hosea 4:3 in advance of a judgment the LORD would soon render, He promised that therefore the land mourns, And everyone who lives in it languishes Along with the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky, And also the fish of the sea disappear.” So there is precedent for God taking away what was previously for man’s benefit, including the birds and fish. In Zephaniah 1:2 He said, “I will completely remove all things From the face of the earth,” declares the LORD. “I will remove man and beast, I will remove the birds of the sky And the fish of the sea,”. Again we see His warning that He will remove fish and bird in advance of a judgment.

This is a strange time. It is almost judgment time. Perhaps Solomon said it best in Ecclesiastes 9:12

“Moreover, man does not know his time: like fish caught in a treacherous net and birds trapped in a snare, so the sons of men are ensnared at an evil time when it suddenly falls on them.”
