"When I first came upon it, when the kids were kicking them out of the road, there had to be 300 birds there, at least. It was crazy. There's some even in the field and the water and stuff, too, it's crazy

It's somewhat common at this time of year apparently - a part of a flock is started, it takes to flight, that part of the flock rouses the rest of the flock in fright, they basically rouse the entire forest anf then in terror fly into things, including each other.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Officials from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency responded and took two to three birds from the scene for testing, Stoffle said. A state highway department truck with a snow blade attachment scraped the birds from the highway onto the shoulder.

So they could'nt find something better to do with them ? :hmm:

i saw it in one of those "will the world end in 2012?" documentaries, basically birds are conditioned to take flight straight away when the alarm call is made, even if they're asleep, what happened in this case was something started the part of the flock, who rose up making the alarm cry rousing the rest of the flock but in such a way as to be uncoordinated, it was dark (I bet they were day flying birds), it was cold, there were probably fireworks to boot, all that threw off their innate collision avoidance abilities and part of the flock died.

Does it happen a lot? No, as it takes a nasty confluence of events to produce mass death like that, but it's neither a mystery or a sign.

Results from preliminary testing released Wednesday by the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wisconsin, show the birds died from blunt-force trauma, supporting preliminary findings released by the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission on Monday.
"They collided with cars, trees, buildings, and other stationary objects," said ornithologist Karen Rowe of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
"Right before they began to fall, it appears that really loud booms from professional-grade fireworks—10 to 12 of them, a few seconds apart—were reported in the general vicinity of a roost of the birds, flushing them out," Rowe said.

Still think they should test these birds to be sure, never know.

Sometimes bad things happen to nice birds.  Its just the way of the world.

Could be the 'sounds' from the HARRP.

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.
