In a shocking incident in Arkansas, 100,000 drum fish washed up along the Arkansas river. Scientists say that a disease is likely to blame. On their own dead fish might not raise too many eyebrows. But a little more than 100 miles away, in Beebe, there was another animal mystery. Just before the stroke of midnight on New Year's eve, thousands of birds started falling from the sky.
On roads, on roofs, on lawns, up to 5000 blackbirds fell within a one-mile area. Most of them were dead.
Everybody is amazed at this happening. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission says this phenomenon is not as unusual as it might seem.
The likely culprit is a lighting strike or high-altitude hail, possibly even fireworks.
Investigators say there is no connection between the dead fish and dead birds.
No matter what the explanation for these odd events, some in Arkansas say 2011 is off to an ominous start. Last year we started it with floods. This year with birds.
