    This makes two large bird "die offs" and a massive fish "die off" in just the past weeks. Although they say these are not "rare" (16 in thirty years ) for birds it seems very coincidental to me that Within a matter of a week or two that three such incidents occured in the midwest.

    Didn’t they say the birds died of blunt force trauma? And the areas they died in had hail storm?

    I did hear the fireworks and lightning/thunder may have been a factor but in all the reports i heard, hail wasn't mentioned...not saying it couldn't have been a factor or mentioned in something I didn't hear but " I " didn't hear of it and it those things happen ALL the time so why wouldn't it be more common....and neither of those things explain the fish.

    Look into the preponderance of fracking that goes on in that area.

    Not that i wouldn't believe that it would have a legitimate impact on wildlife and the invironment but do you really believe that, that might be a cause of this?

    It's certainly a possibility.

    ....now crickets. Although they know that this was attributted to a virus. It has impacted many zoos and bankrupted businesses due to the size of the die off.
