All in Arkansas remember this past New Year’s Eve when the storms that devastated Cincinnati, Arkansas began in the wee morning hours that day. As the storms split and moved to the east and northeast, warnings ceased in the late afternoon hours. This does not explain 11-11:30 pm on that same evening.

There would be a video somewhere these days too. And how would fireworks startle and kill 5000 birds over such a wide, yet defined, location? If this was true and logical, why does this not occur all over the USA on every Fourth of July when the highest population of birds are present in the summer season. It also does not explain the dead blackbird in Benton, Arkansas or these other two locations:
