After 5,000 Blackbirds fell from the sky on New Year's Eve 2010 in Beebe, Arkansas, many people are wondering what this mass death symbolizes.

In dreams, dead birds can symbolize a loss of freedom. Various cultures view birds either as a way the soul is carried to heaven, or, in the case of vultures, ravens and crows, as a symbol of death.

See related links for more on the Arkansas blackbird die off as well as information about birds in mythology.

More information from other contributors:

I can only tell you that from experience. Without fail every time there was a dead bird found in my home someone I loved passed away. I started to believe that i twas more of a warning. It has happened with my grandmother, grandfather, my sisters fiance, my Nana and my dad. Every single time we found a dead bird in the house and within weeks they were dead. All of them had illness except my sisters fiance. So maybe coincidence but, whenever i do find one. I take it very seriously and pray for nothing to happen.
