In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Return of the Bird Falls

October 21, 2011, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: dozens of birds fall from the skies. No explanation yet. And something I noticed in the news cast posted here, no mention at all of the several stories of birds falling dead from the skies that the U.S. and other places across the planet witnessed at the end of 2010 and Jan. of 2011. Impossible to say if there's a connection or what the cause of the current deaths is, but it is interesting this die-off also occurred in the south. The first bird die-offs we heard of last year, in early January, was last year, when over a thousand birds fell from the skies in Bebe, Arkansas.

Ontario, Canada, October 22, 2011: hundreds of birds and fish dead and dying on the shore of Wasaga Beach. Link has video clip with article:
The Ministry of Natural Resources is investigating after hundreds of birds and fish washed up on the shores of Georgian Bay near Wasaga Beach.
Police say that the wildlife is scattered along a nearly three-kilometre stretch north of Wasaga Beach.
"You just want to cry," resident Faye Ego told CTV Toronto.
Locals said they noticed some dead fish on the beach a few weeks ago and a few dead birds earlier in September.
"But now this is just multiplied," Ego said, adding that the situation is "absolutely devastating."
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Peter Leon said that the number of dead birds is estimated to be between 5,000 and 6,000.
At this point, authorities are theorizing Botulism is the cause of the deaths.
