Weather radar shows something unusual around time birds fell

A weather radar screen doesn’t just show the weather, apparently. The National Weather Service in North Little Rock examined a speck on the radar that showed up around the same time all the birds fell out of the sky from alleged trauma on New Year’s Eve. 

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A weather radar screen doesn’t just show the weather, apparently. The National Weather Service in North Little Rock examined a speck on the radar that showed up around the same time hundreds of birds fell out of the sky from alleged trauma on New Year’s Eve.

Today’s THV reporter Lauren Clark talked to Science and Operations Officer Chris Buonanno at the NWS who says that the speck on the picture is definitely not precipitation.

“There are some indications that we’re picking up a non-precipitation target. It has some similarities to say, like a collection of birds.”

The spot on the radar is estimated to be between 1,300 and 1,400 feet in the air and Buonanno points out it doesn’t move like a cloud or rainstorm would.

While speculations continue to pour in, officials in Wisconsin confirmed the cause of death of the birds in Beebe was blunt force trauma.

    That little tidbit of info right there is going to be key to figuring out what happened in Beebe.
    It’s pretty ironic that it doesn’t move like normal clouds and precipitation. Maybe those that have theorized a UFO was responisible weren’t far off?

  • EarthOffical

    It is clearly HAARP. My guess at what you are seeing is radio waves from ionizing the air.

    Infrasound from earthquakes is your answer for this global event. I can show all the Birds and fish die the day after or day of an earthquake.

    You know its conspiracy but fuck it.

    That sure looks like a round focused “beam” of some sort… Everyone knows about HAARP and I imagine things like that would be focused in a circular “beam”. Also you cant help but remember the round sinkholes happening everywhere as well.

    Also its hardly definitive but I said it was conspiracy so fuck it.

    Since everyone else is adding their 2 cent ideas I will add mine and say that this is just a sign of a pole shift since birds are sensitve to magnetism and the bird deaths happened along magnetic merridians (some not all).

    Whatever it was, it looked like an significant release of energy in a concentrated area. I would point my finger at HAARP if I had to guess. It’s clearly not a normal weather phenomenon, though it could still be a natural phenomenon. Hopefully other stations will check their radars for similar phenomena in the other affected areas. In any case this is a pretty significant story, since widespread deaths of birds and fish is a pretty obvious warning sign.

    I thought about the pole shift too. I also thought about HAARP having a big role in the shift as well. Are they aiding or accelerating the process of this natural occurence or are they taking precautions to minimize the severity of the possibly devastating effects of it? Maybe all of this ionic manipulation comes with some pretty nasty side effects. Lets also not forget about BP’s spill and the destruction its still causing in the atmosphere. Maybe all of these things are linked.

    Maybe there was an awesome new years eve party that used dead birds as confetti. But on a more serious note I wonder if people were acting weird that day (weirder than normal that is), like increased accidents or more crime, that could be a sign of increased elecromagnetic activity.

    Let’s look at some possible causes of the world wide phenomenon of mass animal deaths. Is this our canary in the coal mine?

    1. Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) for natural gas, affects air and water and includes extremely poisonous and toxic chemicals and is happening all over America, and Europe and other countries. I highly recommend that you watch http://www­.gaslandth­ The “new and improved” fracking is brought to us by none other than Halliburto­n.

    2. Chemtrails­…not to be confused with Contrails. A Contrail from a plane vaporizes and disappears less than an hour. Contrails are a gift from scientist to alter the weather and includes in the mix chemicals, aluminum and plastic particles that are being sprayed in the air by small aircraft. You have seen them…The­y are the giant, weird looking vapor trails from airplanes that last all day and sometimes into the next day. They frequently look like giant X’s as the pilots seem to get a kick out of making designs. Guess what, we get to breathe this concoction and it also ends up in our water supplies.

    3. H.A.A.R.P. is a group of government scientist and they are continuous­ly accused of things: http://www­­m/articles­/haarp-con­­ml. Seeing that Fracking and Chemtrails are a fact, I cannot exclude H.A.A.R.P. from this list.

    4. Polar shifting..­.it is a long shot, but, hey, I am throwing it into the mix.

    This $h!t has to stop!

    Did anybody in that direct area feel strange, dizzy, stupid, bit confused, forgetful, in a way they recognized was usual for them. Did anybody see what the clouds looked like in that area just before during or after the birds fell

    I’ve got 39 pics of examples from another city of what I think are experiments in electromagnetic or microwave energy. It does affect cloud formations


  • terry the censor

    I am overwhelmed to be in the presence of so many experts of non-existent phenomena.

  • Isis

    And fluxuating revving-up of the force filed … could have not only frightened the birds but cause them to fly head on into the cloak craft …

    @Myra Rosa:
    You said, “Chemtrails­…not to be confused with Contrails. A Contrail from a plane vaporizes and disappears less than an hour.”
    This is new. Almost all of the chemtrail proponents would say any trail that lasts longer than a few seconds is a chemtrail. You are saying “up to an hour”. Please discuss this further.
    I can refer you to reputable sites that indicate that the persistence on contrails depends on the environment where they form.
