Update … On Jan 23 2014 more bird deaths (about 200 Grackels) were found near drill sites (see map) this time in Burleson TX…
The RSOE report is here.
WFAA reported…”Veterinarian Bob Denton did an initial search for clues.
“The first thing I noticed on this bird is his liver is enlarged,” he said, examining a male grackle.
He said one bird had signs of sinus infection.
“The big thing you would worry about is toxins,” he said. “Or maybe a virus.”
What is common in these bird deaths in Arlington and Burleson is proximity to drill sites and an electric power substation. In the Burleson bird kill, there is also two large industrial storage tanks and a nearby air port too.
Below is the two Arlington bird die off stories that occurred in the same area within a three month timeframe. Sadly the Arlington ISD Schoolboard voted on even more land to build schools on in this highly toxic? area …..for birds. What will this area mean for the longterm health of the children? The newest school will open this August 2013 at 2220 E Sherry St.
First mass bird death in Arlington (that I am aware of) happened on November 25, 2012. Here is the video…
Now here is video from the 2/17/2013 mass bird deaths in east Arlington TX….
One hundred and ninety-eight black birds died near gas well site & substation from Parasites. Dr. Jani Hodges, performed an examination of one of the birds. The results, however, were inconclusive.
Through open records, the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory’s final report stated that….
“Cause of death is considered to be pulmonary hemorrage associated with the parasite microfilaria within the blood vessels of the lung. The microfilaria resulted in ruptured capillaries and hemorrhage. Numerous species of filarial nematodes occur in birds. The species of this parasite cannot be identified. Stanley Vanhooser, DCM<MS<DACPV/pjt”
Look at this map and see what else the poor birds flew over that could have killed them since they showed no trauma from the power lines. I think the vet should also look for methane asphyxiation.

The (Caddo) report states that one cow tested suffered from severe pulmonary hemorrhage and edema. Witnesses to the cows’ deaths described them as bellowing and bleeding before falling over dead.
