Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

Well, at least it wasn't a rain of frogs.

/Wasn't there a localized large incident of birds falling out of the sky in 'Flash Forward'?  Does this mean we're all going to get a sneak preview of our futures at some point?

Oh, it's in Southwest Siberia?  Hey, TFA, I think I got the answer to yer 'Mystery' right here.

The Russians are either dumping shiat or testing something nasty, flip a coin.  Maybe both.

Stop fearmongering, subby. It's not a sign of an upcoming apocalypse, its a sign of the current apocalypse.

I suspect this unkindness was caused by a murder of crows.

I quote a Farker from a previous thread (years ago, I believe, so no memory as to a name) about a similar event only stateside: "I believe the word you are looking for is gravity "

It's the windmills. Donny tried to warn you all that the windmills were giving the birds airborne super hepatitis and they were dying by the millions but nobody wanted to listen.  Thanks a lot, libs.

Could be methane burps from the permafrost.

At first I was thinking it might be from eating fermented fruit but that just makes birds stupid enough to run into things, not fall from the sky stone dead.

As was predicted by whatever is going on here in this medieval painting. I think drugs were involved in making the painting.

Had a frog rain a couple weeks ago. After a heavy rain there were frogs all over my front garden and lawn. There were a couple toads too, but mostly frogs.

I'm sure they fell from the sky. There's no other logical explanation. Except witches, but we got the last witch back in 2008.

/first paragraph is true
//second, well your guess is as good as mine
///there's always more witches.

Power Plant 3 probably burned a particularly bad batch of coal. I'm assuming it's still running.

Poisoned in Russia?

What were they about to spill on Putin?

Wolf892: Our world is in peril. Gaia, the spirit of the Earth, can no longer stand the terrible destruction plaguing our planet. She sends five magic rings to five special young people: Kwame, from Africa, with the power of Earth... From North America, Wheeler, with the power of Fire... From Eastern Europe, Linka, with the power of Wind. From Asia, Gi, with the power of Water... and from South America, Ma-Ti, with the power of Heart. When the five powers combine, they summon Earth's greatest champion, Captain Planet!

Or whatever.  I'm willing to accept this as well.

They're just pining for the fjords.

Dr Kuzlyakin said: "I have been working as a doctor since 1975 and this is the first time I've seen this. I am shocked."

He added, "Also, I've never read a newspaper -- even an article online! -- in all those years, so have never heard of this sort of thing before."

i recall this happening every couple of years and they usually find a poison somewhere.

so it is people not an apocalypse.

There is always that 1 in a very large number chance that these birds happenes to be in the shockwave of a comet. I think there is 1 "confirmed" hit of a comet on a human in 1954.

So what is that area down wind from?
Some kind of smelting probably.

Quite possible, and troubling for a lot of other reasons.

>"Or [the birds] could be poisoned by mouldy grain waste. It is also possible that the rooks were poisoned on purpose."

I think I've seen episode of House. Ergot poisoning?

Permafrost methane cloud.  I mean, sure, I bet lots of human-generated noxious stuff gets released out there, but Mother Nature does it sometimes, too.

Point is, ravens are social birds.  A flock of 'em flew into something that wasn't good for them.  Someplace civilized would look into that, but in Russia they're just going to post the video and get back to all that fun cybercrime.

 A real birdothologist would diagnosis this as mass bird lupus. BIrdmatics like this usually indicate birdal movement in the upper atmosphere, the birdulusphere, where birdilite is formed and comes down as new birds. Is my understanding.

I think the most likely answer is the simplest one. Someone poisoned them.

It's the wrong part of Siberia for methane burps but I find the idea of a farting planet hilarious.

Based on the movie "The Core", this means the earth's core is stalled and we need to inject 5 huge nuclear bombs into it to restart the planet.
