Dead Birds in Arkansas Solved?

At least a report from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is claiming as much. Thier new report identifies the cause of the deaths as blunt force trauma. Lab tests were completed on the birds that ruled out bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, pesticides and avicides as the cause of death. The theory is that on New Years loud bangs from fireworks caused 5000 birds to take off at night and as they can not see well at night they flew into various solitary objects causes hemorrhaging like blunt force trauma. I don't know that I am fully convinced with the big bang theory presented but at least they ruled out disease as the cause which is somewhat comforting. Are you satisfied with the Arkansas Game and fish commission's explanation?
