If it is Unexplained Naturally and God Didn't Do It, a UFO Must Have Killed Those Thousands of Blackbirds

Did a massive UFO slam into thousands of red-winged blackbirds out for a little New Year's Eve night-flying over Arkansas? After Arkansas officials examined several samples of the birds, they found them to have
died of "acute physical trauma." And although many have put forth explanations ranging from "washing machine-like sudden thunderstorms" that sucked up the birds and deposited them elsewhere to lightning strikes capable of taking out thousands of birds at one time, many remain unsatisfied. And although the physical trauma suffered by the blackbirds in the Arkansas sky might suggest running into a flying object, a bird strike hasn't been a popular explanation. Except among UFO enthusiasts, like one particular commenter on the UFO Digest website. And a UFO running into the birds would explain a lot.

When something as strange as a thousands of dead blackbirds falling suddenly from the night-time sky makes the news (sort of like those stories of raining fish or frogs), one usually takes note. Why? Because it is a curiosity, an abnormal phenomenon not usually registered in the normal course of events. But sometimes the rush to explain something can lead to hare-brained ideas and conjecture, postulations and theories. But then there are times when even reasonable scientific explanations might come up short or counter-intuitive, driving still more theories to come in from the fringe. And so we find ourselves faced with theories as diverse as an omen from god to conspiracy theories about HAARP to UFOs.

When the sudden death of 5,000 blackbirds in Beebe, Ark., made the news, reports were quick to note the strange nature of the event and that officials were having problems figuring out how the birds had died and why they had perished in such numbers and so suddenly. Within a few days, Arkansas officials had found out what had caused the birds' deaths but not what had caused the trauma that had caused the deaths.

Karen Rowe, an ornithologist for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, told CNN that the Arkansas dead bird fall wasn't that unusual and that the phenomenon could have been caused by a lightning strike or
a high altitude hail. But she also said, " The birds obviously hit something very hard and had hemorrhages."

Strange weather phenomena, like the "washing machine thunderstorm" theory posited by Cornell University's Ornithology Lab Director John Fitzpatrick, do occur and could conceivably cause the internal hemorrhaging suffered by the birds, but, as DJ Pangburn pointed out in an article at Death + Taxes, there wasn't a storm in the area at the time the birds began to fall from the sky, which began around 11 p.m. on New Year's Eve.

An entry on the UFO Digest website suggests the deaths of the red-winged blackbirds were due to a birdstrike against a "cloaked UFO." The posting notes that the birds were probably the "victims of alien technology" and that the story about the birds being out and about at such an unusual hour (red-winged blackbirds are not nocturnal) because of being scared by fireworks (then killed by those same fireworks) was a "BS story." The author, scottywoo, asked how many times had anyone heard of great numbers of birds being killed by fireworks displays.

The UFO theory may seem far-fetched to many, but those individuals should listen to the End of Times theories presented by the apocalyptic-minded Christians and the theories of those who are certain that the HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) array in Alaska was being tested as a long-range atmospheric weapon by the government.

Besides, a UFO birdstrike might explain the deaths of those other birds in Louisiana and Kentucky, hundreds of miles from those thousands of dead red-winged blackbirds in Arkansas.
