Birds and fish die all over the world

Its been gross to read about all the birds and fish dying all over the world, I hope they figure it out. I remember this happened in 2009 as well though but I can’t remember what caused it. I’m posting this for myself, to list the incidents, but you’re welcome to add to it or discuss it. I searched for birds falling from sky and found a lot, almost every year this happens.

Update 06.01: I’ve added crabs to the list, pretty weird, but I don’t think it has anything to do with what happened to the birds..

    Det som irriterer er nå de kommer med tåpelige forklaringer, som feks at de har blitt skremt av raketter eller saltebiler: http://www.vg.no/nyheter/utenriks/artikkel.php?artid=10028922

    Jeg tror at det har noe med jordens magnetfelt å gjøre, dyrene følger magnetfeltet som et kompass.
