Default Birds falling out of the sky?!

Oh this is seriously odd:
Arkansas game officials probe mystery of falling birds - CNN.com
It seems 4000 birds have dropped out of the sky in Arkansas. Still no known reason for that. Was it the weather, or some nutcase shooting massive amounts of explosives into the sky as a homemade new years fireworks? The conspiracy and religious people will go nuts over this one!

Not to mention the 100,000 fish die-off, only a little over 100 miles away. Maybe they're connected? Maybe the flock drank from the river, and the same thing that killed the fish killed the birds? High-altitude lightning and hail just seems too...convenient, I don't even think any sort of severe weather was in the region at the time. I doubt that fireworks (even the shockwave afterwards) has the power to kill such a massive flock, either.

Miraculously they're falling off the sky rather than out of it. What could be capable of this?

Weather, likely, or possibly some kind of environmental contamination.

Such events do happen from time to time, years ago then a load of dead fish fell from the sky. It turned out a small tornado had scooped them up from a lake.

Sounds like that scene in Signs when a camera was watching a bird and it looked like it smacked into something in the sky and fell to the ground

Ok latest semi-official report I heard was that it was fireworks that let them panic and run into buildings and trees - sounds sketchy. I guess a flock could be scared by fireworks and start taking off at night with next to no visibility, but that all of them hit buildings - hmmm :/

Bizarre blackbird, fish deaths spread: 500 birds dead in Louisiana; 100 tons of fish die in Brazil
