Most regular readers here know that I am fascinated with the stories of sudden and seemingly inexplicable animal deaths, where herds of elephants or reindeer or flocks of birds seem to fall dead where they stand (or fly). Part of my fascination is because - to be completely frank - I'm an old softie, and I hate to see beautiful animals suffer. The other part of my fascination is because I'm an old curmudgeon, and suspect that these deaths are not natural in each and every instance. True, some of it may be due to pollution, or some other unknown "blowback" from human environmental impact. But before you think I've gone all soft in the head and am buying into the whole tautological "climate change" meme, I don't mean by "human environmental impact" anything like what the current bumper crop of Marxitards mean by it, and just to be clear, I don't mean (1) carbon "footprints" (2) cow flatulence or any of the other nonsense that pops into their brains. (Am I clear enough? Good.)

What I mean by it are rather the unintended (or perhaps worse, intended) consequences of technological systems that have the clear potential to affect the environment, because they are either engineered to do so (think ionospheric heaters), or because the system is so large that its operation might have planetary resonance effects that could affect biological systems (think CERN's hadron collider). Think weather modification. You get the idea. As Elana Freeland put it to me in an interview she kindly gave to our members, the mere presence of such systems might imply that there is no longer any such thing as purely "natural weather." In the case of ionospheric heaters such as HAARP, the potential for use as a weather modifier was even stated clearly in the initial patents, so chalk that one down to deliberate and intended consequences, and in the case of things like CERN, it's just a speculation on my part.

However, if one takes Ms. Freeland's observation seriously - and I do, because I think it's one of the most insightful comments I've heard - then one might extend that observation to a kind of corollary: there are no longer any purely natural sudden animal die-offs.

With that bit of context in mind, V.T., and G.B., frequent contributors here, spotted this story and passed it along (with our thanks):

Birds are dropping dead in New Mexico, potentially in the 'hundreds of thousands'

Before we get to this article, if you've been following these stories with me, you'll be aware that these SADs as I call them (Sudden Animal Deaths), if taken together, tell a strange story: "conventional" scientists are baffled as to why they are occurring. For example:

(1) In the case of the sudden death of a flight of geese in Idaho a few years ago, and which I blogged about, the best guess was "sudden onset bird flu," that is to say, yet another "magic virus";

(2) In the case of the sudden deaths of flights of birds in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Texas a few years ago, the explanations ran from mystification to what amounted to sudden onset illnesses;

(3) In the case of the sudden deaths of an elephant herd in Africa recently, or of a herd of reindeer in Norway years ago, it was lightning strikes to the ground which suddenly electrocuted the animals.

Considered individually, each of these incidents might perhaps be explained by the mechanisms proposed for them. It's when we consider then together that one runs into trouble; elephants and reindeer aren't going to suddenly collapse and die in a collective herd effort from "sudden onset bird flu" nor are birds going to be prone to electrocution by sudden ground lightning strikes while they're flying.

Now, in New Mexico, as this article indicates, birds are apparently dropping dead, and there's no mention of sudden onset bird flus nor statewide lightning strikes. This time the "explanation" seems even more bizarre and - at least to my thinking - completely unlikely. In fact, in my opinion, the explanation being offered sounds a little ... well... desperate:

It’s unclear to scientists why the die-off is occurring, and Desmond said it’s possible it was caused by a cold front that hit New Mexico last week or by recent droughts.

Desmond also told KOB the deaths could be related to the wildfires in the West. “There may have been some damage to these birds in their lungs. It may have pushed them out early when they weren't ready to migrate.”

Smoke damage from the fires in California? Sorry, I'm simply not buying that one at the moment. There have been fires in California since who knows when, and I don't recall from years past any stories of sudden bird deaths in New Mexico in the same time frame. I'm not saying there aren't any, but I simply don't recall any. In fact, the article more or less corroborates this  in a kind of backhanded way when it states

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said on Twitter that “not much is known about the impacts of smoke and wildfires on birds.”

One would think that by now, with decades of forest fires under our belts, that sudden bird deaths in the same time frame would have at least provoked some study by some state or federal agency. The fact it did not suggests that we're witnessing a new phenomenon, and that fires and smoke inhalation have little to do with it.

Then there's the second explanation offered: a cold front hit New Mexico last week. Well, here's the problem: that same cold front hit where I live too, and I live where there are lots of birds (including that little woodpecker that likes to hammer away on the tree right outside my bedroom in the morning. It's a regular construction zone.) And there are not birds littering the landscape. True enough, New Mexico, like here, had a cold front pass through, but from the records I've been able to look at, it was nothing nearly cold enough to cause bird death statewide, including at such lower elevations as are mentioned in the article, such as at  White Sands. And even if it were really cold, it was only for a few days, and birds can normally keep themselves warm, if necessary, for a few days. It was not nearly long enough, in other words, to cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of birds.

So, no. These explanations sound like mystification, and a little bit like desperation.

But then, very suggestively, we read this:

Multiple agencies are investigating the occurrences, including the Bureau of Land Management and the White Sands Missile Range, a military testing area.

“On the missile range we might in a week find, get a report of, less than half a dozen birds,” Trish Butler, a biologist at the range, told KOB. “This last week we've had a couple hundred, so that really got our attention.”

You don't say... the military at the White Sands Missile Range is investigating? Well, it makes sense, if one suspected the above explanations are not plausible, and if one suspected an unknown fast-acting pathogen, biowarfare, or some completely different cause, or maybe even some version of my bio-electromagnetically activated pathogen.

So I don't know about you, but looking at all these incidents together, I think something is up. Someone, I suspect, is either targeting innocent animals for whatever reason, or is testing things on them. It is, of course, pure high octane speculation. But the other alternative, pure mystification, is I think even worse.

See you on the flip side...

    Yes, Beckysue…..when “our side” has to announce publicly about that type of thing, you KNOW it’s been going on for a looooooong time & something happened to push them to reveal!! 😉

    The beached whales, etc., could point to the undersea activity, IMO! We know various countries have underwater activities going on……here we go……frequencies again!!

    Does anyone remember the time back in the 80’s, probably, when in a certain part of Italy there were numerous spontaneous outbursts of things catching on fire? Eventually the group(?) was forced to move its underwater ops to a different location & then the fires stopped!!!

    Then we have the oddity of human spontaneous combustion!! Would LOVE to know what causes that!!

    Dead birds are also being reported in southwest CO. The first thing to note is how the birds are being found dead, said Catherine Ortega, an ornithologist and ecological consultant based in Durango. Typically, she said, birds hide under a bush or in a shrub to die.
    “It’s very strange when you get birds just dropping from the sky,” she said. “You just don’t see them dead out in the open. So when you do, you can tell something different is going on. ”

    I’ve noticed the bird migration patterns have definitely changed the past 4 years. We used to have a lot of Wren’s and Robin’s in our yard, only a few show up now. I volunteer with the DOW to count the fledgling’s of Fly Catcher, Bluebird and Tree Swallows. Ten years ago they were averaging about 175 fledgling’s a season. This year I had one Bluebird fledgling. I used to see a hundred Tree Swallows flying above me and now I count less than ten. The Tree Swallows didn’t even lay eggs this year. The Bluebirds laid eggs but then abandoned the nest. There’s a lot less bugs for them to eat. Remember when the car windshield was splattered with big bugs after night driving?
    Our beautiful birds and all animals are much more in tune with nature’s rhythm and cycles. What are they telling us? Birds migrate purely by instinct. Humans also survive by instinct and it’s mystifying to me that so many can’t see through the programming. I see 30 beautiful living turkeys eating the chickens food on the ground. My neighbor with 40 acres sees Turkey poop and fires off a loud whistling firecracker gun at them.
    The largest fire in Colorado came only 3 miles from my home during the month of August. It was very heavy smoke for 20 days here. Then we got smoke from a Utah fire. Now we’re getting smoke from CA, WA and OR fires. The sky is solid white, it looks exactly like the chem trail sky’s. Are ‘they’ trying to block out the sun?

    There are terrestrial factors to consider where behavioral norms play a role (those most folks have been getting used to). The weakening magnetic field has yet to play out. Not only its changing dipole arrangement but also its intensity. There have been hints on what seems to be getting through a weakened field, possibly even a collapsing field or an abruptly changing polarity. Cosmic ray increases are thought to be doing their bit in cloud formations and other energy dispersal’s. This cosmic ray affect, although theoretically not any thing new, still seems to have a few surprises in store. Couple them with current energy emissions from artificial sources and one is likely to have a recipe for unexpected consequences not seen before. The birds may be the canary out and about instead of in the coal mines.

    Changing molecular water within organic structures, imposing an altered magnetic field on plants in a water medium, showed a characteristic shift of the plant growth patterns from what was expected and usually seen in an experiment done in the 80’s. The plants in the experiment were grown in water and similar to algae and seaweeds you’d expect to be affected by sunlight. The difference was that the magnetic field that the plant, water (and nutrients), and sunlight were part of was intentionally shifted (and pulsed) as if to do several things; shift from the usual dipole orientation to an altered axis; the magnetic field intensity shifted to represent strong artificial electromagnetic frequency (EMF) sources like an emitter; and because the plants were organic their chemical analysis recorded. This stuff was experimented on back in the 1980’s when there was concern over artificial effects on nearby populations near high powered sources and fields as well as power lines. It wasn’t just naval vessels and their RADAR units that had an effect on local populations or air bases and their active units considered.

    Sufficiently intense microwave energy alters organic chemistry. With a declining earthen magnetic field there may be unexpected consequences from artificial ground sources and increased satellite sources, now combined as if multipliers. There were very few individualized emitters and cell tower functioning in the 80’s. Similarly, weather RADAR’s and other multi-use emitters. What was then were large scale broad field emissions that were hard to corral to study. It comes down to how much exposure: The proximity; the intensity; duration; frequency; tissue and/or material absorption; and biological effect of whatever is absorbing. Because of a weakening magnetic field there’s also three other background radiation sources to consider: Cosmic radiation from solar and stellar sources and emitters; Terrestrial, from stuff or decay products in air, soil, and water; and, believe it or not, what might be already internal to organic life forms like potassium-40, carbon-14, sometimes lead-210 and other isotopes inhaled, drank, ingested and such. Radon can be a problem in certain areas to say little about the randomness of microwave, radio wave, and other radiation sources in general. Large scale fires pump plenty of particles into the atmosphere, too.

    My counter shows my environment currently at 24 counts per minute. Sometimes it’s lower into the teens, a preferred level. The lower the better. Sort of like any exposure to the bug that’s been around. The lower the inoculant load the better. Because radio emissions tend to go through walls for the most part, the fewer that are on the better but then that’s a wild card most folks have to contend with on a daily basis.

    Then again, there are those instances where sudden group effects occur. The birds, for instance. There were those folks who wondered about aluminum screens on embassy windows, extended RADAR exposure, and actual biological effects of the aforementioned conditions above of monitoring. Where to begin, though.

    • Loxie Lou Davie on September 18, 2020 at 11:11 am

      Thank you, Richard!! It seems plant life IS being affected.
      MrMMB333 has people send him pictures of weirdly affected plant life. Most interesting!! Then also, he is sent pictures of “burned” peppers still on the vine… a ray of some sort targeted them, burning a hole in one spot.

      Between what the Sun is causing & what our weapons experimentation is doing, we have quite a conundrum!!!

      • Richard on September 18, 2020 at 5:03 pm

        Conundrum, indeed! To say little about that unspeakable stuff of experiments and notable unexpected effects. Ordinarily there would be many things mentionable between study centers of the 70’s and 80’s but awareness of unsavory network electronic sniffers, looking for trouble they prefer not to have come knocking on their laboratory and comfy office doors, that freedom to discuss things of curiosity has become murky like the unexpected muck of the Jinsha/Yangtze River over you know where, threatening Wuhan and Shanghai and the rest of the flood plains. The ruthlessness of some of their suspected actions to “disappear you” usually means an early funeral or worse if taken clandestinely and swiftly onto their turf.

        That peculiar peeper business, if not terrestrial microbe or insect in origin, might be an emission of cosmic origin. One has seen an increase in a strange speckling and shrinkage on Pecan tree leaves, Photinias (haven’t ruled out fungus and insect munching yet), Elm tree leaves (especially these), and Locust trees. Shrinking 4’o’clocks (annual bloomer and seed producer from bulbs). There may not be a lot of this greenery around but that which has been around for 22 years show significant changes this year. You know, you get used to things a certain way when watering and fertilizing habits haven’t changed on these stationary plants. The Elm tree leaves started a couple of years ago and have been getting more stunted and speckled. Those leaves have pin holes left behind and a fading chlorophyll signature. Like they’ve been sprayed with ‘green-be-gone’ or something. . . Don’t ask.

    Saw that article about the bird deaths. Caught my eye because of this string of blogs and because in past 6 weeks the pond behind my house has been visited by a black swan, Blue herons, white cranes, a hawk, not to mention the everpresent geese and the hummingbird that flew up behind me where i heard the beating of its wings. About same time as NM story, NPR ran a story on 9/16 about the June 1 Trump-Barr clearing of Lafayette Park for Trump’s photo op and how an officer had emailed Joint Forces HQ for D.C. area asking about availability of a sound cannon (Long Range Acoustic Device) and ADS (Active Denial System) (millimeter wave tech to heat the skin of targeted crowds) for use in clearing protesters. If we admit to having this tech (have we tested it on animal populations? ADS might stir a herd of cattle into an old fashion stampede without pistols and cowboys hollerin’), what are they testing now? I recall reading bird deaths occurred at White Sands, Roswell, maybe Taos which is much farther north, and one or two other places, which would suggest either an airborne device flown around the state to distibute the carnage (test results), or something of more widespread effect or high atmosphere/satellite origination. When do human trials begin? Looks like it will be more exotic than Derek Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd’s neck.

    Strangely, I am buoyed by these ‘events’. Not by the dying of innocent birds/bees/elephants (sad), but by the indirect evidence that the SPMOTU (thanks, OC!) were surprised and have no idea what is going-on. If this was a pre-planned ‘event’ like 9/11, we would be seeing polished presentations and aggressive smack-downs of dissenting views. Instead, we are seeing ludicrous explanations akin to the “swamp gas from Venus” UFO explanations. This gives me hope, because there is a fair chance the SPMOTU are running scared on this topic…

    • FiatLux on September 17, 2020 at 11:40 pm

      I appreciate your alternative perspective on this, goshawks! (I like yours better than mine.) If you’re right, it raises some really interesting lines of speculation…

  6. marcos toledo on September 17, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    There have been stories of dolphins, porpoises, whales dying in mass. So birds, deer, elephants suffering mass deaths is not unfortunately a surprise. Has anyone look into mass human death that our elites don’t what to talk about.

    • Theresa Paulfranz on September 18, 2020 at 7:52 pm

      I have read that an invisible something from the sky can have you dead in your front yard before you have a chance to move away. But that is a one at a time thing. Have the elites developed mass death to humans from the sky as well?
      Maybe they have but feel they will test it out first.
      If you are profoundly outnumbered you do not want to try total human species wipe out and be off and get wiped out instead. Testing should be done first. It could be that is what this is. It would supply a motive.
      They may not know if there is anyone in a secret lab working on a defensive measure. But we got our tax money trillions taken by them. Without research labs and our trillions we probably do not have a clue.
      Also group mediation might be capable of stopping them. But humans are asleep at the wheel. And headed off the road. Maybe the deep state is doing this to see what we will say and judge our readiness by this. Who knows.
      Also they might want to know if mass awareness causes us to respond in any way at all. They tend to do things sneaky and acclimate the victim so he does go to sleep at the wheel.
      My guru Yogananda says there are humanoids all over the universe and your vibrations cause you to reincarnate where you deserve to be.
      The real win at this one age ending another beginning is whether you ascended some spiritually.
      And I have read that aliens mess up missile silos. Would they save us at the last minute. It is interesting to speculate.
      We seem to have been their prey for a long time. But the age has changed and the upgrades in planetary energy rise might be in some way messing them up. They could be frustrated and blowing off steam. We just do not know enough but it is interesting to speculate.
      Just how much high octane speculation can we conjure up? We might as well have fun with it.

  8. FiatLux on September 17, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    You mean they haven’t blamed the dead birds on climate change yet?? Agreed that the explanations these days reek of desperation–and suggest a mind-blowing level of stupidity and lack of imagination at every level of society, including the very top. A cold snap making birds drop outta the sky? “We don’t know the effects of smoke”? When even the elite’s storytellers can’t come up with a halfway believable story, I don’t know what the world’s coming to.

    How long have humans being been living alongside animals… If these sudden animal deaths were a natural phenomenon, wouldn’t we have been seeing them for thousands of years by now?

    I was out west last week in the Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah corridor and experienced the cold front. One day in the nineties next day below freezing in the morning. I am not a bird but my system experienced quite a shock. Having grown up in the area, early winter storms are not rare. I’ve experienced snow on the 4th of July. So if we research the past were there similar events? I crossed into New Mexico on the way to Wyoming and was immediately greeted with an electric sign advising, “All visitors must quarantine for 14 days.” Really? No other information was given…Well I am passing through does this apply into me? I called the motel where I had made a reservation an hour prior a with my cell phone to verify I could stay the night and continue my journey in the morning. The answer was “Yes that is what everyone else is doing.” I had plans to visit friends who recently moved there but nixed that…evidently passing through is okay but visiting is not…wonder why? Perhaps trying to protect the fragile indigenous population on the reservations? Or stopping snoopy people from stopping?

    I was “there” meaning in the state of NM.
    The cold front was “cold” but not that cold.
    Temps were in low 40’s in central NM.
    Wind was extreme with gusts 70+mph.
    White Sands is Southern, usually warmer.
    Naturally, with bird deaths on the WSMR,
    they would participate in inquiry.
    The Rio Grande valley is a rich wildlife corridor
    with a Major bird refuge just north of WSMR.
    My thought is the birds were not targeted but
    caught in the “fire” or “crossfire” and already
    weakened from unusual rapid temperature drop
    and wind.
