Not sure if you have heard of this or not, but I found this pretty interesting. For the past few days, it’s been raining birds over a small town near Little Rock, called Ark.
The birds stars hitting the ground an hour before midnight (What an exciting countdown alright~!), landing everywhere you can imagine. Roads, roofs, lawns, the trampoline in your backyard, you name it~! Can you guess what caused it? Here’s what some experts say:
“Lab results reveal that the birds probably died from “acute physical trauma.” Ornithology experts, university scientists, and conservation officials say that all signs point to the fact that something startled the birds (like New Year’s Eve fireworks), and they took off flying, which they aren’t equipped to do at night. Massive panic, stress, and collisions into each other, chimneys, and trees ensued.”
Poor birdies…I mean, can you imagine? here we are celebrating, watching fireworks, and there they are having massive panic attacks while flying in mid air just trying to get home…
So I guess we did start this year with a bang!!
Happy New Year! Not So Happy For Tweety Though..
Well, here’s a video of the article! May your new years be happy, joyful and dead birds free.
Special thanks to my hubby Jay
