NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- A weather radar screen doesn't just show the weather, apparently. The National Weather Service in North Little Rock examined a speck on the radar that showed up around the same time hundreds of birds fell out of the sky from alleged trauma on New Year's Eve.

Today's THV reporter Lauren Clark talked to Science and Operations Officer Chris Buonanno at the NWS who says that the speck on the picture is definitely not precipitation.

"There are some indications that we're picking up a non-precipitation target. It has some similarities to say, like a collection of birds."

The spot on the radar is estimated to be between 1,300 and 1,400 feet in the air and Buonanno points out it doesn't move like a cloud or rainstorm would.

While speculations continue to pour in, officials in Wisconsin confirmed the cause of death of the birds in Beebe was blunt force trauma.

hmm, i don't buy it

If I was from Arkansas, and I had children, I would be panicking in concern! Whatever killed those birds perhaps was not strong enough to kill humans, but some time in the future people from Arkansas may start getting strange diseases. The people in Arkansas need to though it up and find out exactly what happened! The guesses being used is a terrible sign for concern since they are so poor in imagination.

My assumption.....that big bang people felt may have been a gas explosion, which released a big cloud of dangerous gas, the birds startled by the explosion took flight meeting the poison cloud and started to drop off the sky.

The fact that the people handling the dead birds had what appears to be powerful gas masks should be a sigh that something quite bad has happened.

The truth has to come out! If not, and people do not show enough concern to get the real truth, this will probably happen again.
