Well this story isn't exactly appropriate to Valentine's day, but nonetheless it's there, and we have to follow it because "strange mass bird deaths" is one of the phenomena that interests me and, I hope, you.  If you search for "strange bird deaths" on this website, you'll pull up about 16 stories related to the phenomenon, including stories of inexplicable mass bird deaths in New Mexico, Wales (where it appears to have happened again, more of that in a moment), Idaho, and one article containing perhaps a hint of what the problem might be.

The video was shared by C.S. and V.T., and the article by D.P., with our thanks.

First, to the video:

The video is about 55 seconds long, and you'll notice some very peculiar things about it. Shortly after in begins, you will see a large flock of birds in the upper left hand corner, almost but not entirely off-camera.  The flock gradually comes into greater view toward the center of the picture, then suddenly plummets to the ground as if each bird were a miniature dive-bomber. What is intriguing here is that the birds are still in flight, i.e., they're not suddenly dead and falling from the sky; rather, the entire flock is diving into the ground, as if being driven or forced there.  Once on the ground several birds move about as if stunned or shocked - no surprise there - and then take to flight again, leaving quite a few birds still on the ground, some moving, some not. We have no idea from the video itself whether the birds that are not moving are dead or not, though most headline titles of articles about this story tend to state that a massive number of birds died.  Nor can we be certain that this video is the only version of the incident, or of the incident was confined solely to this area.

Nonetheless, it is mightily strange for indeed, the entire flock looks as if it had been pushed into the ground, and with some violence.

Our second "strange mass bird death" story comes, once again, from Wales, where once again great numbers of starlings have simply dropped dead after locals heard what sounded like "and electrical bang" or "electrical explosion":

Hundreds of Starlings Drop Dead in Wales After Locals Hear ‘Huge Electrical-Type Bang’ Yesterday

Local resident Claire Eaton had taken an injured bird home to care for it. “It was really traumatic, on the road there were quite a few dead birds. Blood splattered everywhere. I saw a flash in the sky about an hour previously,” she said of the experience.
Ian Mccaffrey, who works in Waterston, reported hearing a large electrical-type bang as he left work on Thursday night. He says following the shocking noise, dozens of birds fell from the sky and landed on his car. Mccaffrey said the loud sound was similar to lightning.
And as usual we get a rather thin and lame attempt at a "completely natural" explanation:
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) said that the starlings may have been disturbed during their evening roost. "When this happens during night-time, it can cause them to collide with the ground as they become disorientated,” the organization said.
I'm not buying: if people hear what sounds like an electrical explosion similar to a crack of lightning, and then suddenly birds drop from the sky dead, there would seem to be a connection.  It is rather like the birds experienced a sudden electro-magnetic pulse, perhaps one tuned to the specific species.
Which brings us back to the Mexico video: what is causing the flock of birds to dive into the ground en masse, almost appearing as if they had encountered a force that was pushing them into the ground.
Other than some spiritual force of the air, all I can think of is some sort of localized electro-magnetic "pressure field" (I refrain from using the dreaded "s" word here, but those who are regulars here will know what I mean). In short, we may have witnessed a test of a technology in both cases.
That sounds crazy, I know, but ever since I first heard of these strange bird deaths - and the crazy explanations offered for them - when that flock of crows (I believe) first died in Tennessee many years ago, I've thought that this electro-magnetic "pressure field" was perhaps the best explanation.  And now we have an odd video, and reports of "electrical bangs", to go with it. And yes, that means in my opinion the case for that speculation just became a small bit stronger.  In that regard, remember also one of those stories on this website that resulted from the search for "strange bird deaths," and recall the disastrous mass bird deaths in the Hague during a test of 5G:

If nothing else, that too argues for the electro-magnetic pressure field I'm talking about. And yes, that kind of field  typically goes by another name that begins with "s" and rhymes with "alar".

See you on the flip side...

    I live in South Wales. This is the first Ive heard of it but then I dont partake of lame stream media. Kinda reminds me of Philip K Dicks futuristic DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP in which all the birds of earth fell dead from the sky due to some sort of dust clouds.

    Hi Doc. Glad to see you’re back. Missed all these posts. Old guy stories that come to mind for all you young kids:

    Decades ago, I house sat for friends who ran a 1700 acre arboretum. They collected antiques. Huge old library. One old book full of journals, notes and letters from settlers to this area Chicago-ish long before Illinois was a state. Streets in this area still named after them. Schooled with a few of their great great grankids.

    It was jungle to Mississippi River. Woods so thick they hacked their way through. Geese rose from waterways to migrate blackened sky with thunderous roar that lasted 3 or 4 days. Single shot arrow or gun straight up brought down 3 birds. Poo everywhere. Lush thick growth everywhere. All other wildlife as thick as healthy and everywhere.

    I doubt we have adequate context for it. Nor for how wildlife (all species for that matter) act with different density levels.

    Years later I saw video of pink flamingoes hunting in swarms – not flocks. They ran over waters the same way dolphins and killer whales do to swarm and drive schools of fish. Flamingo ran fish into shallows into dense packed traps, then individuals rose up to dive through birds into thick piled up fish.

    Had thought they were solitary stalking hunters only. Have since seen others species do simliar. They all work hunting, stalking, grazing, all behaviors differently depending on numbers.

    In 60’s rarely saw birds bigger than crows. In 70’s saw first hawk. After that one or two a year. In 80’s one a month. Now, 10 to 40 a day depending where and when. Most I’ve seen one day sitting on a look out was 500+ kettling up to shoot north migrating early spring. Rarely saw swarming behavior here until 10 years ago. Seeing it more often now.

    Flocks of starlings under 100 sometimes pull it off. Thin and not impressive. Saw a swarm tightly packed on horizon 5 years ago that looked aggressive. Drove up on it to see a large hawk on the edge of swarm holding too many attackers off – barely. Finally hawk overwhelmed took wind advantage and ran for it. Never seen a big red tail scared before. Distinct body language – panic.

    • zendogbreath on February 16, 2022 at 1:11 am

      Since then, progressively more bird swarming behavior proportionate to greater bird numbers. Last month, Saturday afternoon, reading on couch with 3 dogs peaceful quiet sunny cold calm day. Heard a strange wind. Sounded like steady heavy strong down draft on top of house. No movement in trees and bushes by window. Ignored it until I heard what sounded like hundreds of squirrels on roof. And I felt a weight above me, like it was pressing down.

      Looked up and out and saw birds above our trees above house. Everywhere. Thought of the aggressive movements and our chickens out back. Ran out with dogs and should have grabbed a stick. Birds were everywhered layered on trees bushes ground thick like flies on meat. Chickens were safe under cover and frozen still. Dogs ran out and chased hard. Grackles flew up but not as frantically as they usually do. Within 10 seconds, it felt like yard was a bubble with birds all around flying sitting swooping on fence, house, trees, in the air just 25′ above us. Alfred Hitchcock. That’s when I felt my hands were empty. And they were watching me. They understood what threats we had and what they had. Took shirt off to use if needed, herded chickens into caged run and stepped into house for a cane. Quietly and calmly.

      Came out and watched awhile. Counted a group on roof – about 200. Then saw other similar groups flowing in and out of each group into larger groups. Amazing. Like fast conscious water. Everywhere. Counted about 40 to 50 such groups in sight. Thunderous sound and wind from them. All grackling. Spooky stuff. Heard more beyond line of sight. They covered at least 5 acres of wooded suburban properties. Noticed they were not much interested in our dogs, chickens or me. Stood still and watched. At about 20 minutes, I found one tall oak 100 yards away with almost no grackles. Biggest Red Tail I’ve seen sitting on top watching it all. With angry black rivers flowing all around him.

      He swooped up and over us a bigger tree south and east. As soon as he took air, all the grackles and cries went silent. Just wind sound. Rivers all flowed up and around him. They left us and did the same to another five or so acres a few blocks away southwest.

      The only time I’ve seen that many birds was geese flying up off neighbor’s cornfields, half mile west, probably headed to river 2 miles east. No idea on numbers. Took them 40 minutes of steady thunderous flight to clear field and head out of sight. Deafening wings and cries. It wasn’t dark but as if sky went overcast for 40 minutes. Still hard to imagine what those guys saw, felt and heard for 4 straight days of darkness (and raining poo).

      And yes, we carry good sticks on walks.

        As for swarming behaviors, bees are my best source. 5 or 10 will scout respectfully and warn off when too close to nest. 100 make that respect optional. 1000’s, the respect is no longer very mutual.

        What little I researched on all species swarming, is many different mechanisms and senses are used. Dolphins and whales use sonar that works better than sight. Their sonar also works as weapons. They can sense with it in 3 dimensions and project with it to damage other fish, like a punch. They do this to drive prey into frenzied swarms. Not sure what equivalent sense birds use. Sight cannot explain all their flow in real time. It has to be tactile and kinesthetic for the swarm itself to take over and exercise needed influence levels over individuals. Have only seen this in humans in horrific mob action. There’s a point where individuals no longer control themselves. Hard to imagine the risks to invdividuals (especially on the edges) not being increased in some of these scenarios. Especially if (when) the swarm’s mood turns angrier.

        • zendogbreath on February 16, 2022 at 1:26 am

          With that all said, I first saw use of Active Denial in run up to Iraq War, 2003. Then read that it was used there. Read later that it was used at protests in US – Philly I think. I guess that maser works through a wide range of non-visible wavelengths. Have heard it can project damaging sound and microwaves. Wonder if those weapons systems have advanced any in 20 years.

          Havana syndrome crickets much?

          BTW, has anyone seen the videos (Orwellito on Rumble I think) of a bowl of graphene reacting to music from a stereo speaker?

          • zendogbreath on February 16, 2022 at 1:31 am

            Also BTW, never eat bananas near bees. Master keeper taught me how smokers keep bees calm. It does not drug them, it only stops them from smelling each other. When alarmed, they emit pheromone. Their behavior changes instantly when they smell it. He told me if you’re ever near a hive and smell bananas, run. It’s probably too late, but run anyway. The pheromone smells like banana. He’s smelled it. I asked if beekeepers eat bananas. Doubtful.

    The bird’s eye view has shifted to a very human viewpoint from which 5G’s commercial pitch has been a media fast ball obfuscating the real live experiment being played upon the masses.
    The coming deaths are already marked w/covid headstones.
    Has covid been set up as the 5G patsy?

    5G is dual use.
    A military kill switch? Which can be hacked?
    But AI sez go ahead w/it anyway?

    I was in Rotterdam when the incident happened in The Hague. Nothing in the news there at all. Got home to US to find out about it a few days later. At first they said they died from impact (seriously!) then changed it to their hearts had exploded. Hence the immediate drop of the entire flock. The 5G test- possibly 6G – was also mentioned. First I had hear of a 6G test.This happens over and over all across the world and yet they are still rolling this madness out.

    • Michael UK on February 15, 2022 at 6:03 am

      Like I posted earlier below, the UK military should know what caused the Wales incident and the starlings to drop from the sky – given there is an electronic warfare station located just a few miles down the road. They will know if it was natural (lightening, solar burst) or man-made (EMF, pulsed microwave) origin.

      • Brewstout on February 15, 2022 at 12:58 pm

        “Bird expert : ‘They were probably startled by something, maybe a loud bang.” Bird expert? wow…. Not a mention of the electronic warfare station just down the road. It is interesting that it seems to be mostly Starlings/ Sparrows that are taken out en masse. Not sure why. An autopsy done after The Hague incident showed they died while still in the air. Compare this to what would be the result of crowd control of humans….. birds’ hearts are miniscule in comparison to ours so the effects to stop people in their tracks is like a thumb tack to a sledge hammer.

  9. Zorost on February 14, 2022 at 5:03 pm

    I saw the aftermath of a mass bird death about 30 years ago. It was after a thunderstorm where lightning hit a tree migrating sparrows (?) were in, but it effected birds for many 10s of yards around the strike. Imagine half a football field covered in dead birds like acorns under an oak.

    I don’t think it necessarily has to be human-caused, but of course some times it might be.

    If there was a force involved I would expect to see it affect other things than the birds, but there doesn’t seem to be any indication of that. Not even wind blowing the trees in a strange way. Most likely it was something interfering with bird navigation like electromagnetic, or perhaps flashing lights.

    Tight flocks are supposedly ordered by following the movements of birds several birds out. So not just the next bird, but 3 birds away. This is supposedly how flocks can move in seeming synchronicity, and would mean lights could conceivably cause them to synchronize their flying in a way other than in accord with other birds. In the same way some ditzy people drive into a lake because their GPS tells them there is a road there, these birds would all suddenly veer in a certain direction because flashing lights told their brain the birds around them are moving in a certain direction even when they aren’t.

  10. InfiniteRUs on February 14, 2022 at 11:57 am

    It seems to happen most in winter. And it seems to be most noticeable when it happens to huge flocks because it leaves many dead at once in a specific area to be noticed. Static charges can build easier in cold dry air and would be stronger the bigger and more tightly held together the flocks are. And like clouds when the charges reach a certain threshold and come in contact with oppositely charged areas then electrical discharge may occur, stunning and killing birds. Might happen more readily nowadays because of all the metal particles and salts being dumped into the atmosphere when jet fuel burns over us creating artificial clouds that collect charges. Then when a dense patch of those particles come down and interact with a flock of birds oppositely charged, there you go. Or it could just be like ground to cloud discharge like normal lightening. Or maybe falling chemtrail metals act like like conducting pathways instead of rain or high humidity would during normal lightening strikes.

  11. Michael UK on February 14, 2022 at 10:38 am

    Here are some excellent pictures of the dead starlings scattered across roads and walkways.
    Surely the UK military must know what happened that night in Wales and caused the big loud bang? They have an electronic warfare station located just a few miles down the road at Brawdy near Fishguard.

      . . . As if a switch flipped and / or intense signal redirected voluntary flight motion, as depicted, at a specific grid coordinate of directed signal (possibly). Current reconnaissance is very busy as it is dispersed.

      Nature has its ways and means with schools of fish as well as with flocks of birds following their leaders. Yet there is more to signal direction than just being a few bird wings or fish fins apart amidst the schools gyrating in their medium. The turbulence of air or water with their undulating affects between each flock or school member might account for erratic behaviours, too, but say little about field strengths and subsequent effects from outside intent like those deliberate switch operators. Like the data once displayed now only memories of anecdotal accounts as the actual hard data scrubbed from networks, libraries, and laboratories making a fool of those who once knew or even participated. They assume a temporary place aside the other fringe worthy – for now.

      Decades ago, there were experiments with one-ton bulls – brain-wired bulls – that would be sent charging and upon a flipped switch by a nearby operator would suddenly stall in its fast-paced charge to suddenly turn left/right in circles until the switch was turned off or flipped again and wonder off as if dazed.

      A Rhesus monkey, implanted with signal receiving electrodes, would one second be bottle feeding, a switch flipped, would suddenly drop the full bottle (still looking at it), and become catatonic – opposite its moment of intense feeding. The switch flipped again by the operator and the monkey would pick up the bottle and continue feeding where the monkey left off. Dark stuff, indeed, now, from a potential distance upon an insidious introduction of the necessary means to complete a magnetic pattern of AI design by some accounts.

      The previous descriptions were upright simian made occurrences within the nature of the planet.

      Very dark stuff, to be sure. Almost as if Edgar Allen Poe and Alfred Hitchcock knew of a specific frequency design, when partitioned from the greater electromagnetic spectrum, would send the birds adrift off a flight path not of their usual choosing. Very, very dark as most electromagnetic frequencies seem to be hidden from a certain upright simian visual spectrum of perception anyway.

      That video of occurrence has grid coordinates, time, names, numbers, air space, and orbital position to account for to be more data driven for consequence or simply written off as happenstance. At any rate, it’s doubtful that those birds will be back again to demonstrate a similar phenomenon any time soon.

      The Sol star is not yet done with Solar bursts, either, amidst the weakened magnetic field of the planet. Careful of falling debris as a certain recent launch of dinky satellites, some 40 of them or so, took a Solar hit and are now spiraling downwards to burnup, one hopes, before impacting skulls and flocks of birds in flight.

      • zendogbreath on February 15, 2022 at 11:21 pm

        A few of us here might be familiar with Jose Delgado’s work. As for the continued thread of lab work, didn’t Musk’s Neuralink just publish video of a linked monkey feeding himself with a robot arm through his wired thoughts? Spooky how well coordinated the arm was already. Still at the early stages like Atlas looked in first few iterations. Given progress Atlas and robodog’s have made, betting they’ll have fully trans-monkeys soon dancing to Motown as they did Atlas and peers.

        Comments on hydro and aero dynamics for fish and birds are interesting.

    Tyrants need mob control, and the royal pretenders are gradually losing control, as the brainwashing wears off.

    Today, it is impossible, to muster a gullible patriot, to do the bidding, because honor has been taken off the table.

    The royal pretenders are in panic, and seek other means, to cling on to power. If injection doesn’t work, microwave will.

    When a vampire is in panic, it needs a fall guy, in this case some wildlife.
