Did you hear about the dead birds falling out of the sky? On New Year's Eve, an estimated 4,000-5,000 blackbirds fell out of the sky in Beebe, Arkansas. Now, days later, 500 more birds were found dead along a highway in Pointe Coupee Parish in Louisiana.
Experts are trying to figure out what happened. They originally surmised that New Year's Eve fireworks startled the birds and caused them to fly in the dark, therefore blind, ultimately injuring them. But this second account, which did not involve fireworks, kind of blows that theory.
I'm not even sure what the question is here. I just know that these news stories are freaking me out. How do they make you feel?
