Now if you ask me, their varied reasoning just doesn't stand well with me. Not even the conspiracy theory; it would be impossible to pull off. No, I'm more akin to believing my husband when he said it was due to aliens. Seriously, what other kind of explanation could there be. That many of the SAME type of bird and that many of ONLY one type of fish? The question is why; and I doubt we'll ever know the answer to that.
Please note that while most articles will say that all the birds were the red winged blackbird, this is not the case (as you'll see in the video provided below). However most of them were, and THAT is the scary part. And who knows, the few others could have been at the wrong place at the wrong time.
I'm waiting to see what happens next! Things come in threes you know.
