Ya, so anyone baffled by this stuff? Or is it just dumb birds being scared by fireworks, then bashed themselves against  buildings and zapped themselves on power lines? What about the dead fish in those areas too? Plus..this "creature" caught on a deer cam in December also in Louisiana?  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/40607322#40607322Is that just photoshopped?  Tell me your thoughts guys!

 I run six trail cams on my property and for it to appear to be right in front of the camera, yet still fit in the frame, it would have to be something very small.  I think the creature is a bat (wings and tail down trying to stop or turn).  Some trail cams can put off a little bit of heat depending on what they use for a battery and this tends to attract some insects to them; in turn, sometimes you can get pictures of bats, birds, and rodents right in front of the camera as the try to catch the insects. Depending on what he was using for a trail cam the thing looks white either because the flash is too bright for something that close or it could be an IR camera (I'm betting IR camera).The birds I only have a shaky theory on.  In the pictures and videos I've noticed a large number of the dead are starlings.  I'm not sure about there, but here starlings are a nonnative bird that are taking over the local bird population.  Several of our native songbird populations are endangered because the starlings destroy other birds' eggs and take over nests.  There have been attempts in the past to decrease the starling population by poisoning food that only starlings are suppose to it, however, blackbirds are very similar to starlings in their feeding habits and can become poisoned by this method too.  Therefore, I think it was someone trying to eliminate a starling problem and the blackbirds were just collateral damage.  (assuming the story I saw and the one you're talking about are the same)

Actually, that's funny, I do remember hearing about how people said there was a population problems with Black birds as of late. That could be the reason. Just wasn't announced that they were going to be killed, I guess animal activists would freak.On the Video, I can kinda see what you mean by a bat, cuz of the arms...but I'm still not sure, like you said, depends on how big the trail cam is I guess. Thanks for the input

Can a bat smash a trail cam, though?The dead birds are another thing altogether. Birds nest at night as high in the trees as they can to avoid snakes. We set off fireworks inJuly every year at night. I've never heard of birds dropping in scores around our town as a result of collisions. Sure, they freak and take off, but, I've never seen a dead carcass yet!. The autopsies say that the birds suffered internal trauma. So did the dolphins a few years back when the military was testing it's 'super sonar'. It was blowing the insides out of whales and dolphins, it was that strong.! Who's to say that some testing was done at night and the cover of fireworks would be a perfect set up?Arkansas is in for some karma, I think.

They are finding more black birds - not starlings - in Sweden also fall from the sky, also dead before they hit the ground. In every case they were blackbirds...not starlings. Louisiana - Arkansas - Sweden, so far. Dead fish are turing up in Brazil and New Zealand also within the past week. All look well fed.

I don't think a bat could smash up a camera, but the creature in the picture isn't necessarily the one that broke the camera.  My trail cams are all set on timers so they aren't snapping pictures nonstop, but wait a few minutes between when something moves in front of it.  My experience for animals that are destructive to cameras are raccoons, opossum, and deer.  They can all be a problem if you don't use proper scent control when placing the camera.  If the camera smells human (or at least like a foreign object) they either get curious or get scared and either way it ends with them tearing it apart or smashing it to bits.

www.khou.com/news/local/Texas-Officials-Weigh-in-on-Dead-Birds-112980774.htmlThey don't have any idea what killed them, but they do a good job of explaining the reason they die in large numbers.

Not sure about the fish (although I suspect there will be a rational explanation) but the bird deaths seems to have been caused by Fireworks. Problem is that blackbirds and the like have very poor night vision. Fireworks startle them and they fly in big flocks and often hundreds have died by hitting cars, buildings etc. The cant see well in the dark.This isn't remotely paranormal.

Birds are rarely, if ever, killed because of flying at night because of fireworks. Also, the fireworks in Arkansas were two days before the incident. Also, the birds didn't fly INTO anything. They FELL out of the sky. True that these birds are not night flyers and have difficulty seeing in the dark but the "slamming into something" theory is bogus. It's a nice mundane label for the incident but not logical given the facts. Eyewitnesses saw the birds falling.....not going blam into the sides of buildings.

Oh wait. They did find starlings mixed in the Arkansas scene...my bad.

It all looks a bit staged to me. A really cool facial shot of the creature and a broken camera. I could be wrong but it does seem kinda flashy.....no pun intended.

HAARP radiation perhaps? Or a virus yet to mutate?

Hmm... I look like a fool. Apperently it could be due to the earths shifting magnetic feild opening holes in the megnetosphere, letting solarflares in. kithraskrystalkave.blogspot.com/2011/01/bird-and-fish-deaths-still-unexplained.html BAAHH HOGWASH! I still like to beleive its the beggining of an international HAARP war because im creative like that.Earhquake for earthquake, school for school, flock for flock. haha.

Starlings where found in another town months before the blackbirds in arkansas.They too just fell from the sky dead before they hit the ground.Logically,if you think about it,if birds are dead before they hit the ground,ie 5,000 of them,then it has to be foul play.If it was poison they would have to have eaten at the exact same time.And do ya really think all 5,000 of them would have a heartattack all at the same time also?No my gut feeling,and thats all it is right now,is that it was some kind of shock weapon,either being tested or accidentaly used.A kind of wave ,sound energy bomb.Witnesses from all over testified that they heard loud bangs shortly before the incidents.Its the only thing that makes any sense right now.

 The Birds do seem pretty odd to me, Can't explain that one.The fish however, could be due to temperature shock. I'm not one to preach about global warming, I get annoyed of hearing it myself, but it has had an effect over fish populations over the years, I think this year is just really bad. Essentially, the fishes bodies aren't able to adapt to the drastic temperature changes of the water and get bellied-up. There is definitely something strange about the birds though.

 I found this.  It's a better picture than they show in the video.  I didn't realize the image on the news broadcast was cropped.  This makes it look like a person in costume or even just a prop.  Definitely an IR camera which would explain the eyeshine if it is a person.

Well the bird part of this is still 'evolving'. Now eyewitnesses are saying they were in fact alive as they fell and they are reporting that they were seen flying into things. I had a bird hit the side of my house years ago. It hit so hard that it was like someone throwing a rubber ball as hard as they could. I was there when it hit. The bird sat on the patio for a few hours and was finally able to fly off. I was AMAZED that the bird could live trhough that. It just seems strange to me to have so many birds not survive if they were in fact just scared by something. I doubt we'll ever know the truth about this.The image above looks very disproportionate.

Here's a video update on youtube, from Jan 5, 2011. Alot more than I thought...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2cpJT6FfhkSeriously... What could be happening? : /

I don't think it's as bad as people are trying to make out.  Every winter there are massive bird deaths, just a simple fact of life.  It's a result of the birds' behavior during the winter; they flock up into massive flocks and when something goes wrong a lot of them die.  Although most bird species can have a life span of over a decade, the average life span of a bird in the wild (here in the Midwest, USA) is only about 1.5 years.  Think about how many birds will die every year based off that statistic.  In all reality there probably haven't been that many more birds dying then at any other time of the year, but because they are in such large flocks it is easier to see.
