Skip to comments.Timeline of recent mysterious bird, fish deaths (something is wrong)
Posted on 01/12/2011 4:02:22 AM PST by Scythian
The recent mysterious deaths of birds and fish are causing alarm among naturalists around the world. Birds are literally falling dead out of the sky, and fish are washing up dead on shores and rivers across North America and around the world. The reaction from the mainstream media seems strangely subdued, as if they're all just blowing this off as some unexplained quirk about the natural world that should be largely ignored.
NaturalNews readers think differently. We are concerned when thousands of dead birds fall out of the sky for no apparent reason. The sky itself may not be falling, but previously live animals are clearly falling out of it. If that's not enough reason to wonder what the heck is happening to our planet, then what is?
These are clear signs that something is wrong. Red flags from nature, if you will. Here's the timeline of recent deaths that have been reported:

A superb timeline over here!!
maybe all those chinese flying carp will drop dead...one can only hope.
Hardly a surprise. Y'all need to read less conspiracy stuff and more actual science.
This is a well researched and organized list of the deaths. I had tried to keep up with the various ones, but this is much better than mine.
Funny thing most of those have in common - they happened in winter. A very severe winter. Imagine that - cold can kill. What's next? A breathless timeline of bears crapping in the woods? I can't wait.
yeah,the media is whipping up the public to get back into global warming mode
It’s the gulf oil spill, obviously. Or secret weapons projects. Or energy beamed from outer space. I haven’t come to a conclusion yet but those are tops on my list. ;^)
Somehow this has to be linked to Palin I’m just not sure how yet.
It’s been way colder than this, we haven’t even been below zero, this cold weather blame game is nonsense.
Bullcrap. We had near-record cold in December. Y’all are just looking for reasons to get all alarmist. That’s what Natural News and its readership is all about.
While far from being an expert on such matters, I think one possible explanation for some of these occurrences is a general global cooling in mnay areas.
Not global warming which I believe is a complete and utter hoax.
Realize there are publications whose stock in trade is alarmism, as there is a ready market for that. But this can largely be explained by natural phenomenon and by looking at history.
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait...wait...don’t tell me! Don’t tell me! Something vaguely to do either with the end of the world as we know it, the Anti-Christ, global warming, or a filthy combination of all three! Right?
C’mon, this is a clear case of death by Tea Part rhetoric.
We can expect the next to follow: tsunamis that will inundate NYC, massive shifts in climate ---- aw, hell...why not let's just throw "2012" in there for good measure!
This is why the media is so subdued. They do not want to report the obvious for fear of the reaction to such politically incorrect truth.
Mass extinction events happen. Be glad your species isn’t participating. Yet.
And birds can be at risk as well, getting caught in bad weather aloft or unable to find adequate food when it gets covered by winter weather.
I think if we actually investigated it, it would be a far more common occurrence than we realize. The world is a very big place, with billions of creatures on it. Probably right now, as I'm typing this, somewhere out there, there's violent electrical storms, blizzards, flash floods, tornadoes, horrible straight line winds, searing temperatures, etc, etc, etc. It just happens to be that the media has decided it's more important. Kind of like them deciding that right wing political rhetoric is responsible for lunatic killing sprees.
Could be true. However, the “its just reported more these days” or “they just decided to report it” rationalizations may catch us with our pants down someday on something important.
No, silly. It's because of CERN shooting all those particles around. Betcha they went right through the core of the Earth to where the creatures were found. Those birds and fish got hit with something.
Recall the so-called summer of the shark, when it seemed every beach had a man-killer devouring hapless swimmers.
Then someone did the math, and it turned out the number of attacks was slightly below average globally. It's just that the media was reporting them all in screaming detail, making it seem like an onslaught.
Hundreds of thousands of birds, fish, and small animals died just after the Icelandic volcano eruption.. nobody paid any attention at all, as they were only worried about getting muffy & biff back home from their French vacation..
BTW, that was 2 million dead fish in the Chesapeake Bay, not tens of thousands
The reaction from the mainstream media seems strangely subdued, as if they're all just blowing this off as some unexplained quirk about the natural world that should be largely ignored.

You're right of course, I've read about this phenomenon from different and more scholarly sources than the "main stream media" and it is not new that birds are falling out of the sky and fish are washing up on shore. There is nothing new under the sun.
Perhaps a little more this year than normal or perhaps not. You know what would be really weird? That is if exactly the same number of fish and birds died that way every year.
Just another example of the press and tin foil hat types creating news, sensationalism is all it is, scare the masses, shock 'em, even if you have to fudge the numbers to do it.
No. I think that all the breathless reporting these past 15 years or so of man-made global warming has got me into the habit of not trusting everything that comes out in the media. I want more facts.
I'm questioning whether or not these occurrences are abnormally high? I do know for a fact that today's media absolutely relishes hype and sensitization!
I spelled check, and selected the wrong choice. Should be sensationalism of course, not sensitization!
Anything to distract the voters from the miserable failure that is the 0 administration.
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait...wait...dont tell me!
Something vaguely to do either with the end of the world as we know it, the Anti-Christ,
global warming, or a filthy combination of all three!Right?
Try reading the Book of Revelations in that Bible thingy. (1)
This mass die-off of Birds and Fish is part of the breaking of the 'Seven Seals'.
(1) Go ahead, read it. It won't burn your hands, make you go blind, or compel you to give 10% of your income to me.
If there were some poisoning, or some sort of shock, wouldn't multiple species in the same environment be affected?
Okay, let's the scientific reason you have instead just denying.
If it's just the cold explain why this has never happened before during cold snaps.
We need more science because science The Truth.
Take global warming science, for example. That is where the high priests of The Truth Temple made sure no sinful deniers were permitted to publish any conflicting data with The Truth. Give Algore and the UN your alms and they’ll cool the planet. Vote for Obammy and the seas will roll back.
Science is as corrupt as everything else with motives of personal profit and power. Sad, but that is The Truth.
"The recent mysterious deaths of birds and fish are causing alarm among naturalists around the world."
Somehow this has to be linked to Palin Im just not sure how yet.
Well she has a GUN and she’s a hunter and fisherwoman... Silly goose, it is all so obvious what she’s up to.
Possible Cause: EMP testing or Greenpeace creating coincidental killoffs to exploit as a global crisis.
If we can get EPA (or whoever) to put chips in the ears of all the American polar bears we can actually monitor such events for all of them ~ but not “in the woods” (there are no trees around there) but out on the ice.
...or Bush or global warming or climate change.
I wonder if methane is playing a role in this.
Seems to me I remember reading about a big bird die off several years ago. Birds just falling dead. Could have been as much as 10 years ago, just can’t remember. I think it too was in Arkansas.
Look at the weather reports for cold snaps.
Revelation 16:3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.
Nice list. Have you seen the Google Map of mass deaths:
I've wondered the same thing. An example would be the swine flu thing. The media comes out with X number of people with the swine flu and then you ask, "how many people usually get the flu around this time?" and the number then turns out to normal. Just a manufactured crisis. Always ask questions and do your own research.
