Re: “Blackbirds dead, not singing, in the night

Birds are very tribal creatures. In the wild they are keeen survivors and can adapt to finding food nearly everywhere humans exist. In their large groups, they make up for whatever they lack in agreeiveness. They seem to live for food, reproduction, keeping a social order and play. When this many birds die, it can stress out their surviving clan. However, being highly adaptive creatures, there will simply be more space and less stress, over all. I know many people find starling to be a nuisance in there yard trees and will sometimes clang pots and pans to drive them away. I hope that this incidence shall shead light on not only their vulnerabilities, but also, their beauty as a species. Birds have comingled with humans for so long, they count on us for part of their food chain. When this number of Starling die; it may sometimes be an omen of things to come for humans. For this reason of coexistence; perhaps humans may have a greater respect for these and other birds!

Re: “Blackbirds dead, not singing, in the night

That was part of my consideration -a gas leak from underground pipes or from natural pockets in the ground. A super clean dump project would have ruled that out, post incident. Birds are hyper-sensitive to chemical odors and would have detected minute traces if there had been a gas issue and purched elsewhere for the night. I commend you for bringing up the gas hypothesis.

Re: “Blackbirds dead, not singing, in the night

The first thought I had was of the possiblity of a very large U.F.O. off conventional & stealth radar and detection. A large enough craft utilising powerful magnetic energy, could hypothetically, generate a frequency high enough to startle the Starling into the air, just prior to heart siezure. Other than that; Starling previously overly stressed from the tornado force winds, giving them little or no sleep the night(s) before, took one last flight, being overly/pre-stressed; either dropped from fatigue and or heart siezure. Some reported still alive on the ground.
