Update: Bird Death Phenomena Expands to Louisiana, Kentucky, and Sweden!

Only a few days ago the web and cable channels were abuzz with reports on the death of over 3,000 red-winged blackbirds in Beebe, Arkansas.  Now this same phenomena seems to be occurring in Louisiana, Kentucky, and Sweden.

Over 500 dead red-winged blackbirds were discovered littering the highways of Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana on January 3, 2011.  While, the same day, dozens of dead birds were discovered in the backyard  of a woman in Gilbertsville, Kentucky.  And in the farflung town Falköping southeast of Skövde, Sweden 50-100 Jackdaws fell dead from the skies.

And our regular readers will be familiar with the explanation Swedish officials offered for the bird’s deaths:

Our main theory is that the birds were scared away because of the fireworks and landed on the road, but couldn’t fly away from the stress and were hit by a car.

It’s odd that this same bizarre theory is being ultized by officials in different countries thousands of miles from one and other.  Smells of an organized cover-up to us.  Or very lazy scientists with CNN.

This story is feeling more and more like a Science Fiction movie every day.
