I think so too CM. Rains regularly drive up worms but not in those numbers. It must be something else.

Okay I am posting this even tho I see no news reporting on this but I just find it oddly credible.

Found an off post way way down the bottom on GLP today and this is what it said


Took my family to a point beach state park on lake michigan today. My wife I go there alot so we know if something is not right. What used to be one of the best beaches on the Wisconsin side of the lake was covered with what had to be hundreds of thousnds of small dead fish and hundreds of thousands more dieing as we were there. And the really wierd thing is there was NOT ONE SEGUL ANYWHERE

So really wanted to fix that seagull bit ..oh well. intresting eh?

Seems we are starting up with the dead birds and fish again.

Long time with no reports then in the last few days I noticed 2 atleast ..posting them here.

Isaac has killed thousands of swamp rats!

Check this out ..YUCK!

-Officials with the Department of Environmental Quality say so far they've counted more than 5,000 dead nutria rats on Hancock County beaches, but they say that number could top 10,000 before they all finish washing ashore.

An Auckland beekeeper who has set up 300 hives around the region says his insects have started dying at an alarming rate.
He believes a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder (CCD), which has wiped out bees and reduced food crops around the world, may have reached New Zealand.
Bees are already increasingly under threat from the varroa mite as it becomes more resistant to pesticides.
Since the blood-sucking parasite arrived in New Zealand in 2000, colonies of wild bees have all but disappeared and the pollen industry - worth at least $5 billion to the economy - is now totally dependent on beekeepers.
But Kerry McCurdy, of Beez Things, which provides the highest number of hives across Auckland, says customers started calling last week saying their bees had disappeared.
Only 10 of the 50 hives he had collected had live bees left.

Damn.  I love the bees.  Bees are just the most amazing little creatures.  Imagine a garden without bees. sad


Isn't she sweet?  She was on my leek flowers a few years back, her and lots of others.  Bees LOVE leek flowers.

Okay ..what's up with all these deer dropping dead from a virus called hemorrhagic disease.

But ..Oh it's OK to still eat them? WTF???

"They act sick; they stumble around; they hold their head low,”

Wildlife biologists said the disease is spread by biting midge or gnats, allowing the virus to enter the bloodstream. (doesnt this make you wonder how long befor humans get it?)

Alot of these deer are found dead in or near lakes/streams, is that contaminating the water??

The seem to be decomposing from the inside out.

Thousands dead in IL and 5,000 dead in Nebraska and hundreds dead in NC

This is true?!

I saw that headline on GLP and thought.......well, it's GLP.  Ya know?

From gnats? 

Uh, right.

How long have gnats been biting deer?

Sounds like......something else.

RSPB investigates the mysterious deaths of thousands of migrating birds lost at sea

  • Fishermen report seeing hundreds drowning off south coast
  • The east coast has also seen the arrival of millions of migrants
  • Experts say bad weather could have blown the birds off course
The RSPB are investigating the mysterious deaths of thousands of common migratory birds out at sea.
Fishermen have reported seeing hundreds of seemingly exhausted and disoriented garden birds dropping from the sky into the waters off England's south coast.
At the same time, the east coast, from Northumberland to Kent, has seen the arrival of many birds, including redwings, fieldfares, bramblings and blackbirds, perhaps numbering in their millions.

One professional boat skipper told the conservation charity: 'While fishing about 10 miles south of Portsmouth, we witnessed thousands of garden birds disorientated, land on the sea and most drowning.
'Species included goldcrests, robins, thrushes and blackbirds. The sky was thick with garden birds. I estimate I saw 500 birds die and that was just in our 300-yard sphere.
'On the way home we just saw dead songbirds in the water: it was a harrowing sight.'


Martin Harper, the RSPB’s conservation director, said: 'The scale of these reports are truly shocking, and it has the potential to adversely affect the status of species which may be declining for other reasons.'

It is believed that the birds fell victim to an appalling combination of fog and heavy winds around England's coasts at the end of last month.

The RSPB suggests that the massive swarms of birds arriving on the east coast may have been the lucky survivors that managed to make it across the North Sea from Scandinavia in difficult conditions.

Many others may have perished before making landfall, the Society said.

Squid Beaching In Santa Cruz Litters Shores With Hundreds Of Dead Creatures


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/11/squid-beaching-santa-cruz_n_2279099.html


After hundreds of Humboldt squid beached themselves this weekend near Santa Cruz, Calif., onlookers and scientists alike struggled to understand the animals' sudden appearance.

"Twenty washed up right in front of me," one onlooker, Jim Morrison, told KSBW. "It was like they were committing suicide."

According to CBS 5, attempts to save squid by placing them back in the water were futile -- the creatures swam right back onto shore.

Some scientists believe squid may accidentally beach themselves when they migrate to a new area.

As part of their feeding process, which occurs primarily at night, squid surface from the depths to explore shallower areas. While feeding, "they might get trapped ... and not know where to go, so they just keep feeding and foraging and wash up," hypothesized John Field, one of the National Marine Fisheries Service biologists, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

If that is indeed the explanation, it raises plenty of other questions: For instance, what happened to trigger the squids' migration from their original habitat? The Humboldt squid is rarely seen in northern California, but scientists believe global warming may play a factor in driving the squids from their normal, equatorial habitat.

"It's all very interesting stuff, and there are a lot of theories, but the bottom line is no one knows," Baldo Marinovic, a biologist at the Institute of Marine Science at UC Santa Cruz, told the Monterey Herald.

The Santa Cruz incident mirrors a similar mass squid beaching in nearby Monterey Bay last month -- the precise cause of which is also unknown.

Interesting to note with that last story that right outside Monterey and Santa Cruz is the Monterey Canyon - one of the deepest subterranean areas known to us, and a place of great mystery, still...

also, from a nearby lake in Watsonville, CA

Pinto Lake fish kill probed

http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_22117159/pinto-lake-fish-kill-probed

WATSONVILLE -- About 200 dead carp have washed up at Pinto Lake in the past week.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife is examining the fish to determine what caused the deaths, said Robert Ketley, Watsonville water quality specialist. But because of their advanced state of decomposition, it may be difficult to say for sure what happened.

Ketley said it's possible the bottom-feeding carp are victims of the toxic blue algae that plagues the lake. As the algae decays and drifts to the lake bottom, it can cause ammonia levels to increase and oxygen to decrease, he said. Because carp feed in the depths, they are more likely to be affected than other fish.

Cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, has long infected the 80-acre lake, the center of city and Santa Cruz County parks in rural Pajaro Valley. The problem is pronounced when temperatures rise, and a warm fall produced a late algae bloom.

Exposure to toxins produced by the algae can cause rashes, nausea, diarrhea, liver and kidney damage in humans. The toxins also have been linked to deaths of livestock, dogs and sea otters.

A study of Pinto Lake, released last spring, concluded nitrogen- and phosphorous-laden sediments deposited in the lake 50 to 100 years ago, possibly due to erosion in clear-cut forests, are the main culprits in providing nutrients for algae growth.

No swimming is permitted in the lake, and warnings are posted when toxin levels are too high for safe
contact.

Not exactly dead but still a WTF moment.

I cannot even imagine 100,000 dolphins all in the same spot.

Mystery of the massacred mobula rays: Just why DID dozens of these bloodied sea creatures wash up on the beach in Gaza?

  • It was the first time the fish had been seen on the beach for six years, according to a local video report
  • Reaching up to 17ft in length, Mobulas are of a similar appearance to the more well-known Manta Rays
  • They can weigh more than 12 stone and sell for around five shekels (£0.90) per pound in local markets
  • Rays expert says blood on their pectoral fins may have come from slapping something such as boats
    Dozens of Mobula Ray fish were mysteriously washed up on the beach in Gaza City today and carted off to market by Palestinian fishermen.
    It was the first time the fish had been seen on the beach for six years, according to a local video report purporting to show fisherman examining the Rays.
    The fish are of a similar appearance to the more well-known Manta Rays, which are in the same family, and can reach a width of up to 17ft.
