UPDATE: Wildlife officials say that even more previously unreported dead birds were found in Kentucky last week.

Millions of dead fish surfaced in Maryland's Chesapeake Bay in the U.S., Tuesday, while similar unexplained mass fish deaths occurred across the world in Brazil and New Zealand. On Wednesday, 50 birds were found dead on a street in Sweden. The news come after recents reports of mysterious massive bird and fish deaths days prior in Arkansas and Louisiana.

The Baltimore Sun reports that an estimated 2 million fish were found dead in the Chesapeake Bay, mostly adult spot with some juvenile croakers in the mix, as well. Maryland Department of the Environment spokesperson Dawn Stoltzfus says "cold-water stress" is believed to be the culprit. She told The Sun that similar large winter fish deaths were documented in 1976 and 1980.

ParanaOnline reports that 100 tons of sardines, croaker and catfish have washed up in Brazilian fishing towns since last Thursday. The cause of the deaths is unknown, with an imbalance in the environment, chemical pollution, or accidental release from a fishing boat all suggested by local officials.

In New Zealand, hundreds of dead snapper fish washed up on Coromandel Peninsula beaches, many found with their eyes missing, The New Zealand Herald reports. A Department of Conservation official allegedly claims the fish were starving due to weather conditions.

While all three events are likely unrelated, they come after recent reports of mysterious dead birds falling from the sky in both Arkansas and Louisiana. Thousands of dead birds were found in Beebe, Arkansas on New Year's Eve, and a few days later, around 500 of the same species were found 300 miles south in Louisiana. A Kentucky woman also reported finding dozens of dead birds scattered around her home. In the days prior to New Year's, nearly 100,000 fish surfaced in an Arkansas river 100 miles west of Beebe. Officials are now saying that fireworks likely caused the Arkansas bird deaths, and power lines may be to blame for the death of the birds in Louisiana.

Some remain skeptical of the explanations. Dan Cristol, a biology professor and co-founder of the Institute for Integrative Bird Behavior Studies at the College of William & Mary, told the AP that he was hesitant to believe fireworks were to blame unless "somebody blew something into the roost, literally blowing the birds into the sky."


Wednesday, officials in Sweden reported the finding of 50 dead birds on a street, suggesting that cold weather or fireworks were the likely culprit.

Bird deaths and fish kills at smaller numbers aren't all that uncommon, though the size and proximity of some of the recent events have led people to allege their relation, though officials deny the frequency of these wildlife deaths as being anything other than coincidence.

In August of 2010, tens of thousands of dead fish were reported washing ashore in two separate occasions, 200 miles apart on the East Coast.

Millions of dead birds?

It is my opinion that these mass deaths, the increase in natural disaster, and changes in temperature/climate if connected in anyway might be caused by magnetic changes within the earth. It is known that occassionally the earths poles switch. There is a chance we are experiencing a fluxuation, or much less likely seeing the beginnings in a flip, of the earth's natural geo-electricmagnetic field.

Birds navigate using the earths magnetic field if there is a fluctuatiion in the field they can go off course and crash or become lost.

Electromagnetic fields can also influence the strength of storms and cause stress on the earth's tectonic plates. It is my thinking possibly enough to open small fissures or faults. If these occur under bodies of water they may cause the release of pockets of methane or natural gas as well as, if a thermal vent is caused, either increase water temperature in local areas causing fish death or alternatively if a thermal vent is caused under areas of ice this could cause ice melt at an accelerated rate leading to localized areas of cooler water or if near a strong current could lead to larger swaths of cooler water which could also result in fish death.

Of course this is likely another of my crackpot theories as I have done no research to see if anyone has detected any of the indicators of magnetic shift, ice melt, strong tectonic activity, etc...

If these things keep occuring I may start doing my homework on it.

Actually, I thought the same thing..

On top of what you mentioned about magnetic flight paths, which is debatable on its own, as birds follow things such as the gulf stream based on climate conditions such as air-pressure and temperature (though mostly pressure, as that's what stimulates convection within our climate more than anything) people use strong ceramic magnets to help their circulation.

I also heard talk of 'blood clots' within these birds.. So magnetic fields would work there too, causing blood clots.

But it's only black birds apparently..? So forget ALL that, it's a mystery. Lol

I agree with the guy that brought up the possibility of a weapons test gone bad. And now the media is trying to cover it up.

So far I've heard theories of scalar weaponry for the birds to colder than normal water for the fish in Arkansas and Louisiana. Supposedly similar things like this related to weather happen in the Salton Sea which is located in the Southern California desert east of Palm Springs.

Either way it's pretty damn strange.

Nothing new these types of things have been happening for millions of years, we just didn't have interwebz for the crazies to use.
