Not so sure about your photos...

It looks like those birds are sleeping. Much like humans, birds dress down for bed and perhaps the "decomposition" you think you are seeing are the birds after they have removed some feathers or "gotten ready for bed".

This is so sad! I live in a Gulf Coast state so can relate to having ecology destroyed and by foreign interests no less.

How bad is this going to get before it starts to subside? And there is nothing to prevent something highly radioactive from eventually washing ashore.

This is really pathetic! We are the wealthiest, possibly most advanced nation in the world and in order to be informed of this type of catastrophy, we are forced to rely on our own GLPer not a single news, media, or government agency. That is a sheer insult to America.

Thank you Idgits, thank you. Once again you have proven that you care more than ANY elected official we have. It is all rather indicative of the problem when DHS spends millions more setting up road checkpoints and ammo purchase than it does on a REAL problem. Put up a sign, go harass an American. I would just sit down and cry if I was not so used to this kind of crap from our worthless government.

Yikes, that is a significant and concerning report, one that everyone should pay attention to . . .

How sad for the birds, for all the marine and wildlife affected . . . how sad for this country.

Omg, so there's the contamination from radiation, the poisons from that, and now they're spraying (who knows what!) on top of that . . . and "bag it and leave it"?!! Are they kidding with that?

Your post is well stated and should get some attention.

There seems to be a lot known by the tour guide that led a short cruise to an island in the Puget Sound. He said there are a couple pods of Orcas, killer whales, that live in the Puget Sound. Apparently, according to testing done by the fisheries up there, those Orcas are the most toxic animals on earth. Their number one food source is the salmon that run through the sound and the Pacific Ocean from Alaska to Oregon. The Orcas live in the Sound but have not been seen this year. This may be due to something in the environment or it could be that the salmon are massing somewhere else this year and therefore they're feeding somewhere else. No matter what, the seas are changing...and it doesn't appear to be for the better.

"And now this second earthquake, July 6, 2012, "M4.6 2012-07-06 17:50:29 UTC". This earthquake follows three (3) weeks after the June 19, 2012 report: "M5.2 - 2012-06-19 13:40:57 UTC" [link to earthquake.usgs.gov] . This new quake is a report of a 4.6 earthquake on the Richter scale located 251 km (156 miles) also due west of Bandon, Oregon (the southern coast of Oregon). This is in-fact the exact same area where the volcano is expected to 'pop' off & trigger the subsequent earthquake, the 'cosmic event', I have spoken of. Now look at this link, a U.S map of "smoke" beginning in the exact same undersea region off of the southern coast of Oregon: [link to projectavalon.net] Smoke? Coincidence? No. Not smoke. Lava vents from the ocean floor releasing their molten lava, and more relevant, release of volcanic gases into the atmosphere. Look for next quake event to potentially happen in this area in another 3 weeks or so. [see: July 29th quake below]"

 Quoting: Bluebird


Heya Bluebird...
Its only going to get worse im afraid, and i wouldnt only be worried about things washing ashore being radiated...we are all being radiated as we speak. And it is nt only FUKU's fault. Decades of nuclear testing, contamination issues and such, have given us all a bad case of 'the rads'.
These rads may not effect our generation, but it will be 2 or 3 generations from now that will pay for our mistakes...

the other issue that could have led to these deaths though, is geothermal gases being released from underwater eruptions. These gases could have destroyed the Muscles, killed the birds, and who knows what else...the other point is that some of these birds look like they have been dead for quite some time, others more recently.

Thanks for this post Idgits, a truely heart-felt and concerning post mate, appreciate it.

I am in Bandon at this moment and have to differ with the sensationalist post. The reason for some dead birds is a large algae bloom most likely due to global warming.
All shops and businesses are open and there is very little debris on the beach. I have pasted the news article on the algae bloom.



Foam from ocean algae bloom killing thousands of birds




Oregon Coast Notes - News




Just so you know what it is....A slimy foam churning up from the ocean has killed thousands seabirds and washed many others ashore, stripped of their waterproofing and struggling for life.

The birds have been clobbered by an unusual algae bloom stretching from the northern Oregon coast to the tip of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state.

"This is huge," said Julia Parrish, a marine biologist and professor at the University of Washington who leads a seabird monitoring group. "It's the largest mortality event of its kind on the West Coast that we know of."

The culprit is a single-cell algae or phytoplankton called Akashiwo sanguinea. Though the algae has multiplied off the coast of California before, killing hundreds of seabirds, the phenomenon has not been seen in Oregon and Washington and has never occurred on the West Coast to this extent, Parrish said.

"We're getting counts of up to a million cells per liter of water," she said. "Think about that. That's pretty dense."
