Birds fall from the sky in Arkansas

The last time we fished Arkansas we caught some great fish and left town on the heels of a class five hurricane. The next trip we planned was canned by major flooding. Recently, we got an email from our North Carolina fishing buddy, Paisley, inviting us to the 2011 White River trip. Shortly thereafter we see news of what what can only be described as signs and wonders....

"Around 11 that night, thousands of red-winged blackbirds began falling out of the sky over this small city about 35 miles northeast of Little Rock."

and if that wasn't enough to get you started digging the TEOTWAWKI shelter...

"the bird deaths were not related to the roughly 85,000 fish that died a few days before near Ozark, in the western part of the state, the biggest fish kill in Arkansas that anyone can remember."

These stories are strange. I wonder how many apocalypse theories are going to come up.
