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.

It means you have a bird-killing cat, or that the bird was not watching where he was flying, or that the bird suffered from some fatal illness (birds do become ill, just as people do). In the wild, birds often die or are killed, and then, other species will eat them. Occasionally, they die in a surprising (to us) place such as a lawn or a front step.
