An estimated 4,000 to 5,000 birds - mostly redwinged blackbirds but also some starlings and grackles - died in the White County community late Friday night, said Karen Rowe, bird conservation program coordinator for the Game and Fish Commission.

Some experts think the birds may have been hit by lightning or hail, or may have been stressed out because of fireworks. "I just think it might be the way the weather's changing so much. One day it might be hot and one day it might be really cold," said Jon Rose Brammer.

Crews dressed in Hazmat suits collected the dead birds from a one square mile area near Beebe. "I'm wondering do we need the same thing because what makes that happen for them to drop out of the sky like that," said Melissa Weatherly, a Beebe resident.

According to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, so far there is no sign that what killed the birds could hurt humans.

Preliminary necropsy findings on 17 of the birds indicated they died from internal bleeding caused by bluntforce trauma, “like running into something,” Pat Badley, Arkansas’ state veterinarian, said Monday.
