"The tests ruled out bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, pesticides and avicides (chemicals used to kill birds) as causes of death," the commission said in a statement.

Quote
The tests revealed hemorrhaging "consistent with blunt trauma," according to the report released Wednesday. "In most instances, such traumatic injuries in wild birds are due to flying into stationary objects such as trees, houses, windows, power lines, towers, etc."

Which leads me to ask...what in the name of Zeus's posing pouch hit several thousand birds?

I find it interesting that they don't mention chemical compounds simpler than pesticides or avicides.  :whistle:

I though we established it was Wonder Woman's invisible airplane. Even Glenn Beck concurred!  :D

I got myself too freaked out last night looking up info about the BP spill and dioxin (a carcinogenic chemical that bioaccumulates and results from the burning of hydrocarbons). Our neighbor illegally burns trash in a burn barrel and that will produce it too. No wonder I don't listen to the news any more. :rolleye:

Good old dioxin, my father used burn barrels and also banned herbicides and pesticides that contained dioxin. I believe some of the ashes even ended up in the vegetable garden right next to the burn barrel. Nobody in my family has reached retirement age falling to a wide assortment of common and uncommon cancers. Dioxin the gift that keeps on giving. My last remaining sister now has stage 4 brain cancer and that will leave only one person left alive. We often poison ourselves and the world around us in our innocence and ignorance.
