Re: “Dead birds will never die

@Sanford Marker - Funny, because I think the Razorbacks were attempting to play football with a slippery dead drumfish instead of an actual ball Tuesday night.

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

I'm from Beebe and when I went home for Christmas, my dad told me to drive through the area around 5pm, when these birds were flocking from every side of town to a small group of low trees just west of Winwood (the "dead zone"). It was pretty spooky. The sky was totally black, and Winwood and the Beebe School District located next to it, looked like every tree in the area was filled with black leaves. There had to be millions of them.

They'd group in those low trees over night, probably huddling close together to stay warm. Isn't it a totally legitimate possibility that millions of birds in a small vicinity would mean they were breathing in each other's nastiness into their lungs. Then when they tried to fly, they'd asphyxiate?

Seems like the most reasonable explanation to me, but I'm no scientist in a hazmat suit.
