Flocks falling from the sky all at once suggests a more immediate threat than bird flu.
I suspect poisonous fumes in the air.
There was another story from japan, about seagulls falling from the sky...hmmmmmmmmm?
Nah. Don't you know: it's global warming.
Now they're falling in New Zealand, too. Some serious weirdness here. We'll probably be dodging falling birds in the USA tomorrow.
I better look around the garage for those gas masks!
Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide
Have to do a lot of breathing when you fly, it is an aerobic activity. Inhaled asphyxiant is the most likely.
Is Bill and or Hitlery over there?
Its Bush's fault!
And Nixon's too!
Let's not get too specific, then it might possibly be disprovable. Let's just say that it is a vast right wing conspiracy.

And this from New Zealand: Birds Fall From The Sky 19/05/2004 01:36 PM Simon Mowbray from DOC tells Newstalk ZB's Paul Holmes about the mysterious case of birds falling from the sky in South Auckland. Is a link to a radio talk show there and says that 70 gulls dropped dead yesterday afternoon.
A billion+ chinese all broke wind at the same time?
Experts from the Jiangsu province agriculture department said that because the birds died while in flight, the cause of death may have been contamination in their food, water or environment.
For a large number of birds to die all at once it would have to be some kind of quick-acting airborne gas/vapor that killed them.
It's the timing that gives it away.
Sarin fumes from Iraq?
73. Towards the end of the year Alexander travelled to Babylon. Before he arrived he was joined by Nearchus, who had sailed through the ocean and up the Euohrates: Nearchus told him that he had met some Chaldeans who had advised the king to stay away from Babylon.
Alexander paid no attention to this warning and continued his journey, but when he arrived before the walls of the city, he saw a large number of ravens flying about and pecking one another, and some of them fell dead in front of him. Next he received a report that Apollodorus the governor of Babylon had offered up a sacrifice to try to discover what fate held in store for Alexander, and then he sent for Pythagorus, the diviner who had conducted the sacrifice.
Pythagorus admitted that this was true, and Alexander then asked him in what condition he had found the victim. 'The liver,' Pythagorus told him, 'had no lobe.' 'Indeed', replied Alexander, 'that is a threatening omen.' He did Pythagorus no harm and he began to regret that he had not taken Nearchus' advice, and so he spent most of his time outside the walls of Babylon, either in his tent or in boats on the Euphrates.
Many more omens now occurred to trouble him. A tame ass attacked the finest lion in his menagerie and kicked it to death. On another occasion Alexander took off his clothes for exercise and played a game of ball. When it was time to dress again, the young men who had joined him in the game suddenly noticed that there was a man sitting quietly on the throne wearing Alexander's diadem and royal robes.
When he was questioned, he could say nothing for a long while, but later he came to his senses and explained that he was a citizen of Messenia named Dionysius. He had been accused of some crime, brought to Babylon from the coast, and kept for a long time in chains. Then the god Serapis had appeared to him, cast off is chains and brought him to this place, where he had commanded him to put on the king's robe and diadem, take his seat on the throne and hold his peace.
74. When he had heard the man's story, Alexander had him put to death, as the diviners recommended. But his confidence now deserted him, he began to believe that he had lost the favour of the gods, and he became increasingly suspicious of his friends...
