During 1-Jan-2011, thousands of birds (mostly blackbirds) mysteriously fell from the sky in Beebe, Arkansas.

Theories abound as to what may have caused the death of these birds, ranging from secret government Scalar weapons testing, to New Years fireworks, to Lightning.


Lightning
Local reporting indicates that there had been no lightning in the area for at least 10 hours.

Fireworks
Why would Beebe birds suddenly have a fireworks aversion on New Years Eve, 2011, while not having problems during 4th of July celebrations or any other previous year celebrations.

Secret Weapons
No doubt the government has top secret weapons in Research and Development and I suppose it is likely they have, or are, experimenting with electromagnetic scalar technology, but in Beebe, Arkansas?


A more plausible theory may have originated from a location 50 miles to the south, the Pine Bluff Arsenal Chemical Agent Disposal Site.

The facility was established in November 1941 as the Chemical Warfare Arsenal where the U.S. Army stored approximately twelve percent of its original mustard nerve agent chemical weapons.

Disposal of the chemical weapons apparently began during 2005 and was completed during November of 2010, however “closure operations” and “toxic waste disposal” will continue for two more years.

Could it be possible that a toxic agent was accidentally released into a prevailing surface wind which coincidentally mixed with a flock of blackbirds miles away in the town of Beebe?

It seems possible, but is only one theory out of many that are floating around cyberspace today…

Adding to the mystery, shortly afterward approximately 500 Starlings and Blackbirds fell from the sky in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana, some 300 miles to the south. In addition, nearly the same time as the Beebe bird kill, approximately 100,000 Menhaden, Croaker, and Spot fish were found washed up and dead in a 20 mile stretch of the Arkansas River.
