ブラックバード4000羽の死骸が降る:4000 Blackbirds Fall Dead from the Sky


Omen? Four thousand red-winged Blackbirds fell from sky on New Year's eve, sometime after 11pm, in a little city, Beebe, in Arkansus.

The cause is still being determined, but preliminary lab results from the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission revealed “acute physical trauma” in samples of the dead birds. There were no indications of disease, though tests were still being done for the presence of toxic chemicals.

State scientists believe one thing to be almost certain: that the bird deaths were not related to the roughly 85,000 fish that died a few days before near Ozark, in the western part of the state, the biggest fish kill in Arkansas that anyone can remember. - NYT
