A mystery is developing into the deaths of hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of dead migratory birds dying around the White Sands Missile Range and White Sands National Monument; Cause of deaths unknown, fires maybe suspect

A mystery is developing into the deaths of hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of dead migratory birds dying around the White Sands Missile Range and White Sands National Monument, according to Martha Desmond, a professor at the university's department of fish, wildlife and conservation ecology. 

What was first believed to be an isolated incident turned out to be a much more serious problem when hundreds more dead birds were found in regions across the state. including Doña Ana County, Jemez Pueblo, Roswell and Socorro. "It's just terrible," Desmond told CNN. "The number is in the six figures. Just by looking at the scope of what we're seeing, we know this is a very large event, hundreds of thousands and maybe even millions of dead birds, and we're looking at the higher end of that."

Dead migratory birds -- which include species such as warblers, bluebirds, sparrows, blackbirds, the western wood pewee and flycatchers -- are also being found in Colorado, Texas and Mexico. These dead migratory birds were found in the White Sands Missle Range and areas in Doña Ana County. Alongside biologists from White Sands Missile Range, Desmond and her team began identifying, cataloguing and examining about 300 dead birds on Saturday to learn more about the condition they were in when they died.

Residents and biologists reported seeing birds acting strangely before they died. For example, birds that are normally seen in shrubs and trees have been spotted on the ground looking for food and chasing bugs. Many were lethargic and unresponsive so they were getting hit by cars, Desmond said, in numbers "larger than ever seen before." On the missile range golf course, swallows, which are aerial insectivores that don't even walk, were sitting on the ground and letting people approach them, she added. Possible reasons One of the factors biologists believe may have contributed to the deaths of the birds is the wildfires burning in California and other Western states, which may have forced the birds into early migration before they were ready.

"Birds who migrated before they were ready because of the weather might have not had enough fat to survive," Desmond said. "Some birds might have not even had the reserves to start migrating so they died in place." Some birds might have had to change their migratory pathways, while others could have inhaled smoke and sustained lung damage. While the fires and dry weather in New Mexico may have amplified the number of migratory bird deaths, that still leaves many questions. "We began seeing isolated mortalities in August, so something else has been going on aside the weather events and we don't know what it is. So that in itself is really troubling," she added.

The birds will be sent to the US Fish and Wildlife Service Forensics Laboratory in Oregon for necropsies and to determine their cause of death, but it could take weeks to get results. "This is devastating. Climate change is playing a role in this." Desmond said. "We lost 3 billion birds in the US since 1970 and we've also seen a tremendous decline in insects, so an event like this is terrifying to these populations and it's devastating to see." White Sands National Monument

These birds have no fat reserves and muscle deterioration, means they have starved to death, reason? Nothing to do with fires, that’s just an excuse for real reason. FUKUSHIMA is still pouring out radiation into the oceans destroying each food chain. The fish , insects and now birds can’t get enough to eat. Each food chain is dying out, Planet earth is dying because of FUKUSHIMA but the powers that be, don’t want you to know the truth.

Sad happenings. Fukishima radiation is an EXTINCTION event unto itself, but I think and know there is more to this than ionizing radiation. In The Oceans there is a warming going on as well as acidification and oxygen depletion. A cubic meter of water can hold 4,000 times the heat as a cubic meter of air. What is killing the insects and birds is Electromagnetic fields at wind farms. Plus we are all being bathed in a bath of ever increasing Radio Frequency Radiation which is non ionising, but results in single and double strand DNA damage just as ionizing radiation. This RFR has devastating efects on insects and birds. Unfortunately they have devastating effects on all mammals including human beings. The deployment of 5G will also be an EXTINCTION event if we allow our evil globalist to turn this MILITARY BIOLOGICAL WEAPON, TRACKING, COMMUNICATION, BATTLEFIELD INTERROGATION, AI COMPATIBLE SYSTEM on us.

What Sociopathic Insanity could cary out these evil plans to depopulate our planet and replace Nature with GMO's, Synthetic Biology and Transhumans? We all have to ask Bill "Kill" Gates before we hang him and his demonic Lucifarian despot budies.

Thanks for letting me get that off my mind and chest. Take Care

COVID or CA fires ... DOUBTFUL imo
How about 5G "testing" at this airbase??
This is not a "starvation" or "migratory" exhaustion event folks.
Let's maybe consider something more nefarious that is likely more
factual and intellectually honest.
