Utah: Thousands of Birds Die After “Crash Landings”?

The Establishment Lies and excuses about the ever increasing earth changes are beyond absurd! 

Apparently the cover-up artists hope people will believe so many migrating birds were all suddenly, inexplicably, and deathly confused.  Why only in Utah, and why didn’t this happen in the past?

The more likely culprit for yet more mysterious animal deaths:  Methane release.

Shame on The New York Times for continuing to publish disinformation, misinformation, junk science, and/or outright lies instead of the truth.

Thousands of migratory birds were killed or injured this week after apparently mistaking a Wal-Mart parking lot, football fields and other snow-covered areas of southern Utah for bodies of water and plummeting to the ground, wildlife experts said Wednesday. Crews went to work cleaning up the dead birds and rescuing the injured survivors after the creatures crash-landed in the St. George area Monday night. By midday Wednesday, volunteers had helped rescue more than 3,000 birds, releasing them into a nearby pond. There is no precise count of the dead, although officials estimated that it exceeded 1,500. Officials said that stormy conditions probably confused the flock of eared grebes, ducklike, aquatic birds making their way to the Mexican coast for the winter. “The storm clouds over the top of the city lights made it look like a nice, flat body of water,” said Teresa Griffin of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. “So the birds landed to rest, but ended up slamming into the pavement.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/15/science/earth/utah-thousands-of-b...

Maybe the below ZetaTalk Nancy posted early provides clues to what happened to the birds in Utah.  Like so many other very unusual events and phenomena occurring worldwide, birds did NOT drop out of the sky for no apparent reason before Planet X arrived in the inner solar system (ditto for rivers turning red!).

SOZT
It matters not whether physics has a term for a cloud formation, or whether this occurs in nature in other fluid mediums. The question is, why NOW? As with other phenomena appearing during only the last few years – Moon halos, Sun halos, neon clouds, red dust sprinkled on the snow, monstrously large spider webs, flocks of birds dropping from the skies, unexplained rogue waves, or signing reservoirs – why NOW and not before?

Of course this is wobble related. The technical Kelvin-Helmholtz description includes different speeds and different density. Where natural where wind and water meet, air usually mixes more readily. The dramatic wave clouds require a layer of air more viscid, thick, which a radically lower temperature in the air would achieve. Higher humidity in the lower air layer would likewise be required, to form clouds when suddenly cooled. Likewise, the air layer moving over the top would need to be PUSHED quickly, which the wobble achieves. Air tends to move with the land, so the lower level clung to the land, while the upper level had velosity and was free to move.

According to Wiki,  Birds have exceptional perceptive skills (aside from not realizing windows are present).  How could a bird know that glass is a clear solid object?  Not even a human could visually spot a piece of clear glass at a distance if the human were flying at bird speed through the air.  Unless the glass was reflecting...which even a bird would see a reflection of some kind and steer away,  just as a human would. 

Therefore,  except in the situation of clear glass,  a solid surface is recognized by birds perceptually from far distances.  Therefore,  a large GROUP of intelligent birds all flying at top speed into a solid object means every bird must not see the presence of the solid surface.  The odds of this happening is not only beyond absurd,  but simply IMPOSSIBLE.

WIKI quoted: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird_intelligence

"Traditionally, birds have been considered inferior in intelligence to mammals, and derogatory terms such as bird brains have been used colloquially in some cultures. Such perceptions are no longer considered scientifically valid."...."The visual and auditory senses are well developed in most species"

Thanks, everyone.

Looks like the cover-up artists are experimenting with a very old standby excuse:  Blame the victim(s)!  And the birds cannot testify in their own defense, naturally.

With the very unusual gale force winds -- in the absence of actual storms -- being reported nearly worldwide (it's the wobble!), it is possible strong winds or microbursts literally flung the birds into the ground in more than one location.

But to claim so many birds all simultaneously, suddenly forgot how to land is beyond ridiculous.  (Thanks, Howard, for definitive proof of that.)

The excuses they put forward for these events are downright insulting. What do they take us for?? Here is another, from NM,  where birds apparently flew into a truck. Are they serious?

Bloomfield highway dotted with dead birds

By Ryan Boetel rboetel@daily-times.com

BLOOMFIELD Even Edgar Allan Poe may have gasped at the morbidity along Bloomfield Highway on Thursday.

At lunchtime on Thursday, 40 to 50 dead European starlings were scattered in a 50-foot circle across U.S. 64 in Bloomfield. Some were lying on their backs with their small feet sticking up in the air, and at least one of them was missing its head.

About 30 dead birds were north of the highway just east of Murph's Complete Automotive Service, at 6658 U.S. Highway 64. About 20 additional piles of flattened feathers were on the highway.

John Kendall, a wildlife biologist for the Bureau of Land Management, investigated the cluster and identified the species of bird.

The starlings likely roosted in shrubs north of the highway Wednesday night and died when they flew into the side of a large vehicle driving the highway late Wednesday or early Thursday morning, he said.

"It certainly is unusual," Kendall said. "Usually birds are smarter than that."

European starling are non-native birds and are considered to be an invasive species, according to the United States Department of Agriculture's website. They were introduced to America as part of a plan to bring all the birds mentioned in Shakespearean literature to the country.

The birds form huge colonies of hundreds or even thousands of starlings, Kendall said.

"They're pretty fun to watch because they're a big blob of birds that bobs and weaves," he said.

But their massive

flock size also increases the chances a group of a few dozen birds could break off and kill themselves, Kendall said.

A large die-off of any animal species can signal a health concern because the animals could have been poisoned. In the past, flocks of birds would sometimes die if they came into contact with open pits at natural gas wells, Kendall said.

Those circumstances are rare now because of industry regulations, he said.

Kendall said it is unlikely the Bloomfield birds died from environmental causes because the animals were so close together when they died.

The San Juan County Public Works Department removes large animal carcasses such as deer from roads and takes the dead animals to the regional landfill.

The county will not remove the dead birds because the tiny animals won't threaten passing vehicles, said Nick Blasingame, a public works manager for the county.

"Some predator will get them," he said.

@ Becky : Usually, all we hear is that their autopsies are inconclusive - one nice exception here : " UPDATE: A state veterinarian tells NBC that preliminary necropsy results from several birds show that they died of "multiple blunt trauma to their vital organs," though what caused the trauma remains uncertain. According to Dr. George Badley, their stomachs were empty, so they weren't poisoned, and they died in midair, not upon impact with the ground.", actually. Although I have to add that since he´s not writing anything about how he concludes that they died in mid-air...(which I believe also must have been what happened)..

I sympathize with you Amanda1  And wonder if authorities ever test for methane in their autopsies...??

Comment by Malou (Marie Louise) Geleff on December 16, 2011 at 1:23am

@ Starr : yes  - and they´ve also aired that "blunt trauma"-thing before, as far as I remember..doing autopsies in all seriousness..

Comment by Starr DiGiacomo on December 16, 2011 at 1:08am

Do we all remember the Arkansas birds sometime back in Feb. who supposedly died of fright........a possible mass heart attack ??......IROFWL

"mistaking a Wal-Mart parking lot for a body of water"..

I don´t think so..

Thanks Astrogal, and Amanda H : don´t do that !

Grebes and other "ducklike aquatic birds" slow their flying speed before landing by back flapping their wings as the below video illustrates.  They don't "plummet to the ground" when they're trying to land on ice and their approach is belly up, feet dangling - not head first.
