dead birds Thousands of Dead Birds Fell From the Sky in Arkansas on New Year's Eve

On New Year’s Eve, thousands of dead blackbirds fell from the sky in Beebe, Arkansas (–about 45 miles northeast of Little Rock).

An expert with the state’s Livestock and Poultry Commission speculated that the entire flock could have been hit by lightning or high-altitude hail.  But he also said it’s possible that New Year’s Eve fireworks scared them to death.

There’s no footage of the birds actually plummeting to the ground, but it’s all over the local news in Arkansas.
