Or maybe a tornado hit them. I think Arkansas had some tornadoes go through recently.

Physical trauma caused by falling on the ground could also have happened if they flew through a cloud of CO or something.

Sounds like Hitchcoks's The Birds part 2. I would have died too just seeing that. RIP poor birdies.

Flashforward, indeed. Now I know why they canceled it.

Joy to the world: I’m sure this has nothing to do with Biblical floods in Australia, cubic miles of plastic floating in the pacific, toxic death in the Gulf of Mexico. And I’m sure it’s not connected at all to vanishing tigers in Siberia or any other Shakespearian tragedy involving inconclusive blackbirds anonymously and unanimously falling dead from a new year’s sky, someplace far far into the future.

Chemtrails or just the cold snap of weather.

Ravens and crows can take the cold weather, but blackbirds go down south in very large formations. Have never seen a blackbird very high in the sky though --> that is a new one for me.

Sure there is a perfectly good explanation for this.

Commission ornithologist Karen Rowe said the birds showed physical trauma, and she speculated that “the flock could have been hit by lightning or high-altitude hail.”

The commission said that New Year’s Eve revelers shooting off fireworks in the area could have startled the birds from their roost and caused them to die from stress.

If the birds showed physical trauma, wouldn't that rule out dieing from stress?

physical trauma = stress, ie: panic caused by fireworks is the suggestion made in the article

Meanwhile, a major fish kill event was also reported in the Arkansas River... what's going on over there?

Wouldn't stress more likely cause psychological trauma, rather than physical trauma?
