Hundreds of small starling birds fall from the sky in Utah, US while the cause behind it remains a mystery.
In a weird incident which occurred in Utah on Monday, January 29 where more than 200 starling birds fell on the street from the sky, while the cause behind it remains unknown.
According to Sergeant Chad Carpenter with the Draper City Police Department: "It's one of the rarest things I've ever heard of," fox13now.com reported as per say.
"You've seen that black cloud as it's flying all over the place.
Well, that's a starling group and they call that flying tandem or murmuring," Sergeant Carpenter said. Lacey Brown, one of the residents from Utah who was driving through the street witnessed this mysterious incident.
Lacey stated that: "As I was driving, these birds were just falling out of the sky.
They were all on the ground right around here and on the roadway," Brown said, "They were just falling out of the sky like leaves," as reported by fox13now.com.
The birds fly together in flocks while staying close to each other during winter to stay warm and also to stay protected from their prey, experts revealed.
As per the speculations made by netizens, the flock of birds was killed because of aliens, a supernatural UFO attack, they were poisoned or they were struck by a thunderbolt.
"No aliens, no cloaking device," Carpenter said, "No poison, it was just one of those freak things where the birds were just flying along, crashed into the side of a large vehicle and boom," he added, fox13.com stated.
The witness Lacey pulled over to help the birds and she saw one man shovelling the birds out of the road.
"It was not a sight for the faint of heart," Lacey said as quoted by fox13.com.
Draper Animal Services was also present on the scene to help in collecting the birds that were still alive.
Around 17 of these hundreds of birds were found alive and were transferred to the rehabilitation centre report revealed.
The birds will be released into the wild once they recover.

  1. This sort of thing has been happening all around the world for quite a few years now. THE MOST PLAUSIBLE EXPLANATION in all of these cases is methane poisoning.

    What with all of the Earth Changes that have been ramping up, many areas around the planet have the ground opening up and releasing methane gas which, being lighter than air, rises up into the atmosphere. This phenomena has also been happening in the world’s oceans, along sea coasts, lakes, etc. Many of these releases can develop into huge bubbles of methane which replace the oxygen normally in the atmosphere. Any species of birds flying into these methane bubbles are suddenly going to be asphyxiated due to lack of oxygen.

    Most people are unaware of the phenomena because the topic is largely suppressed so, unless local news coverage happens onto the story, it gets ignored for fear of “panicking the public.”

    1. It started on new year's day 2011 if I remember...https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/01/110106-birds-falling-from-sky-bird-deaths-arkansas-science/

  2. There could be a couple of more plausible reasons for them falling out of the sky. They appear to either be dead before they hit, or close to it by the time they reach the ground. Methane concentration would not be enough at altitudes thats birds fly to be high enough to kill them. But sudden powerful downdrafts of super cooled air from very high up, if fast enough would have little oxygen in it. That with the drop in temperature and the birds would fall and suffocate. Also if the air fell fast enough, it would be difficult to get lift with very low oxygen. I've also read that pesticides used against these birds are not used in the winter or cold months. But a sudden downdraft that came down and reached the altitude the birds were flying at (a few thousand feet up) would have caused them to be disoriented if the air were coming down very high up.

    Another theory is the changing magnetic field of the earth, causing directional issues for birds. Down could be up, and vice versa, and they flew up till they ran out of air. But as they fell some woke back up before impact and this could explain why some survived the fall.

    1. Good point and...these reports are often around the new year, cold weather.

  3. Those Methane clouds may also contain substantial amounts of hydrogen sulfide, which is extremely poisonous.
