Video of Birds That Don’t Fly, in June 2011 Somewhere in Fukushima, EX-SKF, January 4, 2012:

A video posted by a resident somewhere in Fukushima Prefecture in June last year shows two birds in his/her front garden unable or unwilling to fly even when approached by a human. […]

it was posted at GeorgeBowWow’s blog on December 23, 2011 (his blog is in Japanese only).

GeorgeBowWow thinks the birds may be affected by radiation.

The bird (bulbul) in the beginning of the video dropped from the persimmon tree, MAYODORA writes in the Youtube description of the video.

MAYODORA says he/she measured radiation on the bird with his/her survey meter and it was rather high.

Recall this quote from yesterday’s AP report on Alaska seals being tested for radiation:

Stricken live seals were lethargic, allowing people to approach

The above video was posted about 10 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns. There was also a 10 week gap between the time Chernobyl fallout rained down on Northern California and reproductive failure in area bird species (via The Institute for Bird Populations):

[…] In addition, the reproductive failure at Palomarin did not begin at the onset of the breeding season nor did it extend throughout the entire breeding season, but coincided with the roughly 10 weeks between about May 6 and July 16 during which time young birds were in the nest and elevated levels of radioactive iodine were present in the environment […]

Watch the institute’s founder describe the findings:

  • This video has been on my youtube playlist for quite some time. (Lessons of Chernobyl) Excellent!

      Interesting. I saw SOOOOO many baby birds in my back yard last year that couldn’t fly. They wouldn’t even try to get away. It was just like in the video. Looks like neurological damage. The birds in the video couldn’t even coordinate their movement enough to move their feet.

      Glad I saw this. Didn’t put two and two together at the time, but we lost almost an entire family of baby birds. Four or five of them died. It seemed wierd at the time, but I didn’t make the connection to the fallout.

      Am in No. Calif. near S.F. Bay Area.

      • Hi HoTaters- Nice to meet you. Where are you located exactly? I’m also in the SF Bay Area… Living in Alameda and working in SF. I’ve noticed the fog has become almost omni-present these days. I’ve lived here most of my life and we never really got much fog here in Alameda, but now a days it never leaves. I’m always hurrying my kids from the car to the house and vice versa b/c I cringe thinking about the chemical cocktail lurking in that billowing white stuff (well actually, it’s more gray these days). Blessings and Love to all!

      • Is there any information on if these birds died or got better ?
        How about the ones in SF Bay Area ?
        I know many enenewers have posted about fatigued, lethargic at times during this fallout including myself, maybe a connection here ?

        The more I watched this Former Russian’s Chernobyl Documentary Video, the sad .

        The heart and souls controlling Japanese and This world as a whole is become more cold and hard than former “Evil” Red Russian.

        Or we can say the former USSR is more civilized like human being than the post cold war civilization today.

        They are hero and bravo people, and acts like Man.

    • Bones Bones

      So sad. People are treated no different, by their governments, than animals. This is a similar report to those who are very lethargic and losing their hair. If the birds and other animals are affected as such then why would humans be any different. This is a litmus test much like how canaries were used in mines to test carbon monoxide (I believe) for the miners. These animals must be tested for external and more likely internal emitters.

      Amazing how much data, concerning contamination and health, is just sitting there to be collected and studied. Why is no one studying it?!?! Perhaps, they are scared the truth will be broadcast!

    Psychological disorders chernobyl studies 1992

    “In their January 13, 1993 issue, the Moscow Times quoted a study showing that 80 percent of 1,600 liquidators examined in a clinic in St. Petersburg were suffering from serious psychological problems. 40 percent of victims seeking medical help were found to be suffering from neural disorders such as loss of memory.

    Tens of thousands of liquidators suffer from dysphasia, depression, memory dysfunction and concentration problems.…… “Our theory is that, in some way, the flow of blood to the brain has been, and possibly still is, reduced.”

    Another complex of symptoms found particularly often amongst liquidators is the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS………. the diagnostic criteria for CFS apply to 26% of people that received a radiation exposure of less than 0.3 sievert. ………… The left side of the brain appears to be more vulnerable than the right side.

    P. Flor-Henry reported that the observed depressive status-displays and clinical syndromes such as schizophrenia and CFS, that prevail amongst a high percentage of the liquidators, are accompanied by organic changes in the brain ………. They believe this indicates that various neurological and psychiatric illnesses can be caused by exposure to radiation levels between 0.15 and 0.5 Sievert.

    ……..Flor-Henry also reported that similar clinical syndromes, which are accompanied by EEG changes in the left cerebrum, have also been observed amongst liquidators suffering from acute radiation syndrome. It surprises him that neither these psychiatric illnesses nor EEG-changes have appeared amongst the Russian veterans of the lost war in Afghanistan.

    ……………. it is possible to prove that cerebral changes in Chernobyl liquidators and veterans of the first Gulf War, as well as the war in Bosnia, are very similar. Flor-Henry attributes this to the use of projectiles containing uranium ………”

  • ZombiePlanet ZombiePlanet

    The evidence of DNA modification, resulting from radioactive stimulus (i.e. catalyst), has always reared it’s ugly head within the animal and plant species, before humans realize what is actually happening to themselves.

    The clock is ticking and I doubt that Jimmy & Playboy Bunny’s will gain mass public confidence.

    Look for discounts on space suits soon.

    Bird hearts work very hard (beat very fast) and i am reminded of what Dr Busby said about children with heart attacks or other. Cesium137 becoming part of muscle tissue. The Heart muscle being 100% muscle…

    • alasanon

      Wow, good point! I don’t see quite as many birds as I once did and I’m on the East coast… The larger birds seem to be holding up better than the little ones? (as per radiation impacts, larger people fare better) But, during the worst of it in March-April, I had a nest sheltered in a nook of my residence and at that time, 5 healthy red finch baby birds were born & they flew the coop! I hope they are Ok somewhere! This is very sad, devastating.

      • alasanon

        It was so great to see that beautiful, spunky bird family going strong this past spring, despite the disaster! 🙂 I just don’t know how animals can hold up long-term lately in the rain and whatnot without shelter/safe(r) food…

  • Alice Alice

    This makes me so sad…one reason we’re seeing videos on animals and birds being stricken by nuclear fallout is probably because no one will film a sick human unless it’s absolutely necessary.

    Can’t say we’re very good at taking care of the home we share with other species.

  • Blondie Blondie

    The birds in my backyard near my birdfeeder are doing the same! I noticed it a few weeks ago. They will land on the ground and just sit there. They stay still for a very long time and if I approach, they don’t fly away until I am about a meter from them! It had me worried, because I have cats and they are making themselves easy targets by sitting on the ground. Very worrisome!

    Also, I’ve noticed that some flocks of small birds are flying very erratically. Not synchronized and gracefully like they usually do, but all topsy turvy among each other, and in all directions, almost like they are drunk.

    I didn’t connect all this to Fukushima, but maybe I should!

  • James Tekton James Tekton

    Hi Blondie and Alice,

    Yes sad, but still just the tip if the iceberg yet to be discovered.

    And you are right to be concerned about your cat. We lost ours last summer. The animals on the ground, in the sea, and showing sooner in the air will continue to drop like flies run through a cloud of RAID!

    Yes, sad indeed for truly, man has done himself in and there is not enough world concern to force actions to change the inevitable.

    PURELY live and love well in the last days of Pompeii.

    • Blondie Blondie

      One of my cats has just been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism a few weeks ago. 🙁

      (I have mentioned this on the forum about health anomalies, as I am convinced Fukushima is to blame.)

      The others (I have six cats and a dog) are having bad appetites, which is highly unusual for all of them, too.

      I also found a dead starling in my back yard last week, too. I don’t know what it died from, but it was odd to me, that the cats weren’t all over it. They wouldn’t touch it. 🙁

      • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

        Dear Blondie:

        I’ve just been diagnosed (and referred to an endrocrinologist to totally nail down the diagnosis) for having some sort of auto-immune (my body is attacking its own) thyroid thing that the doctor initially thought was a mild hypothyroidism. She’s not Pharmaceutical bandwagon crazy either. She’s an excellent doctor. I didn’t tell her that all my drinking water has been, pretty much, from 2-gallon water bottles (arrowhead) for the past 10 months. Perhaps BPA is playing a role, I hope, in my damaged thyroid–meaning I hope not radiation. It seemed swollen for a few weeks back in September/October. I’m otherwise a very healthy person and get plenty of moderate exercise. I’m going to return to running and weight work outs though with this latest news. I didn’t want to turn her, my Dr., off by asking to test for radionuclide contamination. I’m going to gather my research first before bringing that up as she’s my only primary care physician possible with my insurance. It would be cool to live somewhere with better intellectual values (open mindedness and curiosity about current events effects) and with SOCIALIZED, universally available medicine.

    • Alice Alice

      Hi James,

      It’s a profound sadness that makes me cry. I hope it’s not radiation related.

      I’ve noticed that there have been less birds/bird sounds for months. Even the ravens that used to come around for years. My husband named two of them ‘Never’ and More’.

      We have indoor cats and I’m keeping a close watch on them.

      • alasanon

        Same here! Where are you, Alice? I live near some serious wildlife and parkland in VA. I still see a good number of large birds of prey, hawks, eagles, ravens, and crows! I see healthy-looking smaller starlings and grackle-type birds near the coast in DC. There seems to be less sea gulls, but they’re still prevalent, too. However, at VA Beach, I recently saw a sea gull feeding on another sea bird that had died. That seemed a little weird? (Cannibalism because ocean fare is not as viable??)… I guess they will eat anything they can?…it was foreboding.

        • alasanon

          maybe they eat their own regularly? I pray for those little birds, who used to visit my window. They were so precious! 🙁

        • Alice Alice

          Seagulls, being scavengers, will eat almost anything, including birds, so that may not have anything to do with their food source being depleted although that seems a high possibility in the very near future.

          There used to be these tiny birds that would hop around at my feet and they’re gone now as well.

          I’m in California, alasanon, and can’t afford to move. I’m looking into a communal type arrangement which would be feasible if I can gather enough like minds.

          The one thing I can do is to tell everyone within earshot about Fukushima and directing them to this site. I’m quite sure they think I’m a nuisance but hey, if not now, when?

          Some days I feel like a voice in the wilderness.

      • James Tekton James Tekton

        Hello again ladies,

        Perhaps some Potassium Iodide in the food and waters might help your critters?

        Stay aware of dead things and bury them ASAP in a safe location.

        Many blessings and prayers for all who are and will suffer.

        All we can do is all we can do…one day at a time.

  • StillJill StillJill

    I mentioned a few days ago,..on the anomaly thread, that a bird fell out of the sky last week at my feet. Then, two days later, one of my roommate’s 12 geese fell over dead after exerting itself doing a fly-over.

    I have two deaths of young adults I’ve shared also. 22, and 23.
    Their hearts seemed to explode. Neither had any known heart abnormalities either.

    I feel sad for those who can’t see this. One must be blind in one eye, and unable to see out of the other,…to MISS THIS.

      I think you’ll appreciate my story. My little sister has discovered after many years of trying that she is pregnant. As the only “active breeder” in the family this should be a very special event for our tiny family.

      I am happy she is happy and will support her anyway I can.

      I just cant believe everything is okay in the world given ample growing evidence it is not.

      The nuclear industry has changed and probably ruined life as we know it.

      I should be celebrating finally becoming an uncle.

      My head and heart hurts today thinking about my sister’s journey ahead.

        Please be sure to follow all the appropriate protocols for protecting baby including no shots. DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER FROM SIS.

        Stay well clear of large amounts of “noisy” electromagnetic activity. Get an air filtering device and water filter now while you can still get them if you really want to do something special for the newborn.

  • bleep_hits_blades

    I can add my story to the tales of physical/emotional changes since Fukushima – I have ‘gone to hell in a handbasket’ so to speak. Totally impossible to sort out cause & effect because I have a history of problems with depression, anxiety, and also hypoglycemia… all of which have gotten worse, energy level has declined.

    Can’t sort out the emotional vs physical causes – however I have been emotionally devastated by Fukushima — just… that these are the madmen who are running the world, who have the power… this is their level of risk, irresponsibility.

    Only recently have I begun to wonder to what extent my physical/emotional problems could possibly be connected to my childhood exposure to radionuclides, now that I am learning how much more dangerous and hazardous these ‘low levels’ actually are than we have been told.

    I am 68 now and have had to do a lot in terms of diet to stay alive and healthy as long as this. Since Fukushima I have taken a nosedive and the biggest casualty has been my will to live.

    Not asking for sympathy, this is really not ‘about me’ – I am mentioning it mainly because increasingly I am wondering about the role of radionuclides in my past and present emotional and physical problems.

    Also of course there are the many chemical toxins we have all been exposed to, in food, water, ‘medicines’ etc. – I have long been aware of these, and tried to keep them out of my diet and home as much as possible

    In addition to low energy, depression, loss of ‘zest for life’ – since Fukushima I have had a cough and a back problem has developed.

    I can relate, when there is talk of lethargic seals and birds, and when those who have been heavily exposed to radiation tell of their ‘always feeling tired’. Chronic fatigue syndrom as been a problem of mine since my late 30s. I healed myself using the Gerson Therapy (check it out – very powerful holistic non-toxic, non-invasive)… but it is getting worse again now since…

    • Anthony Anthony

      All the best to you Bleep. I always enjoy your perspective and hope strength and health improves for you.

    • Alice Alice

      Please try Olbas cough syrup. It’s one of the best around and the best thing is there are no contraindications if one is on other meds.

      Be well.

    • bleep,
      Do what you can to be with us a long time, I know walking or getting out dose me a lot of good, also try to make a improvement or a fix around the house every day ! Progress !

  • bleep_hits_blades

    I mentioned my health problems mostly because when I see the pix of those poor seals and birds, so sick and exhausted that they can’t even summon the energy to flee a ‘mortal enemy’ (a human) -I really feel for them! I know what it feels like, at least to a degree. Just looking at the poor seals, the expressions on their faces, you can tell how really sick and tired they feel.

    Thank for kind comments also, Alice and Anthony. I actually feel much, much worse for the younger generations than I do for myself. At least I have had a reasonably long life.

    I vacillate between thinking what the hell, might as well ‘throw caution to the wind’ and drink wine and eat pizza and Haagen-Dasz ice cream, etc. etc. — and then pulling back and trying to stick to the healthier diet.

    Re cough syrup, my cough is not frequent at all. But it HAS been with me since shortly after the reactors got trashed and the radionuclides began to flow over here (Hawaii). Must have something to do with all those particles of aerosolized plutonium, etc. etc. etc. that I’ve inhaled.

    When I read about the seals, I got ‘that sinking feeling’ … you just know if the radiation in the ocean is that bad (in terms of sheer quantity/amount) — so bad that it is killing seals and other ocean dwelling life – you know we are in deep do-do.

    I frequently talk to people here who are going snorkeling, swimming, surfing etc. and I wonder… is that safe, at this point? If the seals in the Pacific, and the sea turtles, are sick and dying, then it seems likely that the waters here in Hawaii are also contaminated by now. (If I do mention it, most of them get that look on their faces, like – oh oh, crazy lady here… so mostly I just hold my tongue.)

      I have MS so I think I know exactly how fatigued those birds feel. I have been wiped out these past few months, I wonder why?

    • James Tekton James Tekton

      Hey now BHB,

      First of all my dear, please receive this healing prayer for you and your concerned heart. Breath in some healing here OK. 🙂

      You said:

      “I vacillate between thinking what the hell, might as well ‘throw caution to the wind’ and drink wine and eat pizza and Haagen-Dasz ice cream, etc. etc. — and then pulling back and trying to stick to the healthier diet.”

      Some day, I am going to write well too. But in the meantime, this maybe the very reason I feel OK in this environment that is higher than most people are in on the US continent at a daily average of between 50-60 CPM. Minus the alcohol, my recipe for staying vertical, live large in purity.


      You said:

      “my cough is not frequent at all. But it HAS been with me since shortly after the reactors got trashed and the radionuclides began to flow over here.”

      Get some of this ASAP. Take a dropper full every day for three days, then back down to a half a dropper for the next four days. You should feel healed or cleared of any viral and most pathogenic type infections in your respiratory system. Half a dropper a week for maintenance.

      Most of the MYCOPLASMA weaponized flu’s are based on BRUCELLOSIS diseases. Do some homework around this.

      Colloidal Silver Plus is a years long part of the medicine cabinet around here that also keeps us vertical and has worked to protect many of us.

      You also have to remember that when we first recognized chemtrails back in 95, we knew that the chemicals depleted the body of Vitamin B-Complex and Vit C in your system, thus causing a person to have a weakened immune system and be more vulnerable to these biological weapons created so the military medical industrial complex could profit. Ever wonder why you see all those flu remedies that don’t do squat in the store front just before the flu season hits?

  • StillJill StillJill

    Bleep and moon,….Yes, you see it too,…in the seal’s eyes!
    When I was ‘couch surfing’ two months ago,….and at my age (51),…I felt like those seals. And,….I know what you mean bleep,…all the way. Especially the wondering if it’s all worth it. Sometimes I REALIZE that seeing all this,…living perhaps THROUGH it,….may be more than most of us can handle,…myself included. But, then I remember 1Cor 10:13,..where I’m reminded that the good Lord won’t make ANY of His children handle more than they CAN. If He wants me to see the show,…so be it. (That’s my final take on it.)
    The Gerson Therapy and diet are FIRST CLASS. I am on a very similar program,…Dr. Robert O. Young’s, “pH Miracle”.
    Knowing that the junk food is also acidic,…just like isotopes are,…and harm one in similar ways, (cancer for one),…I stick to the rabbit food.

    Like Tumrgrwer said to me this morning,..”We are here right now, for a reason”.

    Let’s not let those SOB’s see us sweat on our first Cruise, eh?
    I’m going out like my Father in 2009,….with my shoes on, wondering what the hell happened? 🙂

  • In California, my favorite bird call used to be the mourning dove call.

    Since shortly after FUKU, I have not heard a single, solitary call and have not seen any of these beautiful birds.

    Not sure if it is related to FUKU yet, but I cannot recall NOT hearing them at anytime since I have lived in this area.

    The bird study in the video above found some species were highly affected, while others were not. Overall, the primary effect was the death of most or all infant birds in the affected species. Diving birds seemed to do much better, but there are not many of those.

    As FUKU keeps spewing radiation ad nauseum, I wonder what the future effects will be as we get into a second, third, fourth and more years of continuous radiation releases? Will birds expire and not be able to reproduce at all? How long to adult song birds live? If they cannot bring any chicks to adulthood, what happens then?

    It was bad enough that Chernobyl killed a whole generation of birds in the US and assumably globally. Now we have a global radiation disaster that seems like it will just keep on going and going and going forever. Can the birds, much less humans put up with this, and if so, for how long?

  • StillJill StillJill

    Or,…are we about to live, “The Birds” Hitchcock movie?

  • Flapdoodle Flapdoodle

    Every morning since December 23rd, or 24th there has been one to three dead doves on my property. What is really odd is they look like they are asleep on the ground. No sign of trauma or damage of any sort. Does anyone know if this is a sign of radiation sickness in birds?

    There is a hawk having a great feast (and making a great mess with the feathers).

    I will keep an eye out to see if there is any sign of illness in the hawk. My place is about half way between Roswell, NM and the Pecos river.
