Skip to comments.Dead Birds: Thousands of turtle doves fall from sky in Italy

Witnesses in Italy said thousands of turtle doves fell from the sky, Wednesday, Jan. 5, following a series of incidents in the United States and Sweden.
According to residents in the town of Faenza, birds were falling from the sky like little Christmas balls." The reports are similar to witness accounts from New Years Eve when Arkansas partygoers took cover as 4,000 red-winged blackbirds and starlings pinged cars, rooftops and roadways.
Unlike birds that died in other areas of the world, the turtle doves were found with a strange blue stain on their beaks.
We have no idea, a witness said via e-mail, why this happened all of the sudden. The doves just started falling one-by-one then in groups of 10s and 20s.
Initial tests of the doves indicated that the blue stains on the beaks could have been caused by poisoning or hypoxia.
Hypoxia, a lack of oxygen, is known to cause confusion and illness in animals. It is also a common precursor to altitude sickness.
Scientists in Italy said official test results done on many of the dead turtle doves will not be available for at least a week.
Unlike incidents in Sweden and the U.S., the kill in Italy marks the first in which poisoning or sickness is suspected.
Birds in Arkansas, Louisiana and Kentucky showed signs of blunt trauma. Many birds were found with broken wings, necks, beaks and legs, suggesting they became confused and flew into solid structures.
Italian officials also said cold weather could be a factor in the kill. The flock could have been swept into a high-altitude wind storm before dropping to the earth.
As of press time, the number of dead turtle doves near Faenza was expected to reach 8,000 or more.

HAARP....all explained here.
I’m sure this has been mentioned before, but the “blunt force trauma” couldn’t have been caused by falling out of the sky onto, like, the ground, could it?
Starting the runup to 2012.
Wake me when its a flock of turtles.
Now that would be something I’ve never seen before.
Party likes it’s 1999!
Then one would have to answer what caused them to fall outof the sky in the first place. Then I seriously doubt the 100,000 fish kill was caused by falling out of the sky. So far violent winds or hail makes the most sense for the birds. The fish is a big question.
This pisses me off. I have been to Faenza in N Italy. Obam tuns the military gay and now they are up to something. This is HAARP or that new military space ship. I am so sick of this s**t.
“Birds in Arkansas, Louisiana and Kentucky showed signs of blunt trauma. Many birds were found with broken wings, necks, beaks and legs, suggesting they became confused and flew into solid structures.”
Perhaps they all ate something that made them drunk.
The Earth’s magnetic field is preparing to flip. During this phase the magnetic lines are all screwed up, causing confusion in animlas which use the magnetic data. Exhaustion may be the major cause of these ‘bird falls’ and possibly even fish die-offs.
Or moose. Moose falling from the sky would be quite a sight to see.
Maybe its the crab nebula gamma rays.
The partridge remained in the pear tree.
Demi Moore ping.
Lead astray by the four calling birds ...
