In the Austin American Statesman, Austin Texas paper of October 8,
1998, appeared the following article:
2,000 HOMING PIGEONS LOSE THEIR BEARINGS, DISAPPEAR (The Washington
Homing pigeons, as the name suggests, are supposed to find their way
home. But more than 2,000 of the creatures have disappeared this week
and no one can explain it.
The birds lost their way during two separate homing pigeon races held
Monday. Out of 1,800 birds competing in a 200-mile race from New
Market, VA to Allentown, PA, about 1,500 have vanished. And in a 159-
mile race from western Pennsylvania to suburban Philadelphia, 700 out
of 900 pigeons are missing.
Most of the pigeons would have been back in their lofts within a few
hours. Although it’s not unusual to lose a few birds during a race —
a hungry hawk, for example, might snag a few racers — this week’s
loss is extraordinary, organizers of the two events say. “There is
something in the air,” said Gary Moore, who was the “liberator” for
the 150-mile race, deciding when and where the birds were
released. “To lose this many is just unbelievable.”
Was it sun spots? A UFO? The currents of El Nino?
It’s hard to come up with an answer pigeon enthusiasts say, because
no one knows how homing pigeons do what they do.
>>Disagree here, because lots of research on pigeon homing
capabilities has been done. It has been determined that pigeons use
about 3 methods 1) visual cues during the day; 2) geoelectromagnetic
hints, & 3) star patterns at night. Blinded pigeons — or pigeons in
a fog — still get home and “windmill” slowly in to a landing.
Blinded pigeons with tiny permanent magnets attached to their heads
produced totally confused birds!……
Moore’s theory is that the disappearance may have something to do
with CELLULAR PHONE ACTIVITY (my emphasis…jb). It’s widely accepted
that the pigeons use electromagnetic fields to help the navigate and
cellular phone calls might interfere with that process, he
Most long-distance races are held on weekends when cellular phone
activity is lower. But the two races in question were postponed from
Sunday to Monday because of rain.
Sun spots also can send the pigeons off course, but the sun activity
that day was low, organizers say.
Jim Effting, who lost 34 of the 37 birds he entered in the race to
Allentown, also thinks that something very peculiar must have messed
up the birds’ innate tracking systems. He says the birds took a wrong
turn and could be in North Carolina by now. The three racers of his
that finally made it home arrived Tuesday afternoon. They were
exhausted, and it was obvious they had been flying lost for hours,
said Effting, who lives in Emmaus, PA.
What’s certain is that with each passing day, the chances that the
birds will survive are decreasing. Unlike their wild pigeon brethren,
these speed machines don’t know how to feed themselves in the wild
and are easy prey.
Editorial Note: An interesting supporting article appeared in the
proceedings of a symposium and workshop held in Snowmass-at-Aspen CO,
in 1973  and sponsored by the National Science Foundation in
concert with the Neuroelectric Society, the International Institute
for Medical and Biological Engineering, Marquette University and The
Medical College of Wisconsin:
There is an important chapter in the Proceedings about the action of
large flocks of blackbirds and starlings, where hundreds of birds all
turn, in milliseconds, and NONE OF THEM COLLIDE . The video shown
at the conference illustrated the rapid twisting and turning as the
flock few in close formation. VERY impressive…as though all were of
one mind! There was no twisting or wave motion indicative of visual
or auditory cues! It was theorized that the birds used some sort of
proximity detection sensory system based on microwave phenomena,
since the structure of bird feathers was somehow related to microwave
antennae! (also see )
The apparently synchronous turning and wheeling of flocks of several
bird species, particularly starlings (Sternus vulgaris), has long
been a phenomena of curiosity and interest.
The recent series of reports suggesting that birds may be able to
detect the earth’s magnetic field makes the hypothesis that turning
movements in bird flocks may be coordinated by electromagnetic means
more attractive. Such a signal would be instantaneous, could reach
all birds in the flock regardless of their position relative to the
signal source, and could carry sufficient information for turning
Analysis of films of turning flocks of birds and experimental studies
of startle reaction times in birds in our laboratories have suggested
that the electromagnetic radiation model could provide a parsimonious
explanation for the observed behavior of the birds.
There are several other presentations in the above book, relative to
microwave sensitivity of living systems to extremely low intensity
fields, and I remember one chapter in particular in this area by Dr.
C. Romero-Sierra and J. Bigu del Blanco, Dept of Anatomy, of Queen’s
College in Kingston, Ontario .
The above book, while expensive is worth having as an excellent early
reference to bioeffects of electric field gradients, magnetic fields,
microwave, and air ion effects.
I have noted an interesting phenomenon about 8 miles south-southeast
of here (Wimberley, Texas). This tower, each morning and afternoon
all summer, has been a prime roosting spot on every cross-member for
dozens of vultures (turkey buzzards)!! They may be getting an EMF
radiation buzz and/or may be waiting for something to die! Seems
quite symbolic, in several ways, of this whole microwave
communication and cellphone long-term bioeffects situation. (Please
keep in mind that it has long been known that selected EMF pulse
rates, waveforms and frequencies have healing, sedation and emotion-
evoking capabilities). I have noted many communication towers in my
travels and have seldom seen birds on any of them. This is the first
tower I have noted with so many birds and all of the same species.
This might also be a good example of how one can make snap decisions,
based on insufficient data and reach erroneous conclusions. Since I
have not familiar with buzzard habits, it may be that the tower is
just a convenient elevated roost, on a hill near a highway, where
good road-kill scavenging is available. Canada help wondering

Jim: I reported on the birds. The story you report verbatim as it
appeared in the Washington Post seems to have been edited. The
initial WP report put the number of the original population of birds
starting the race at 3000. In addition, from their release point in
Virginia, the birds were traveling to various destinations; a town in
New Jersey, Brooklyn, NY, Allentown and Pittsburgh, PA. Most of the
birds were lost enroute, and a HANDFUL alighted on property along the
way or deviation thereto. Rest of the birds were not found, which
remains the case to date.
Generally the FIRST report of an incident is the most factual.
Thereafter, the cover-up starts and the story is watered down and
factual omissions prevail. This seems to be the case in the Texas
version of the story. For instance, when the story broke, the bird
racers positively stated that (paraphrased) “the electromagnetic RF
emissions from cellphone devices and antennas changed the aerosol,
which would affect the birds’ sense of direction.” This positive
statement is from people who study bird biology and have sufficient
knowledge to know “what environmental pollutants or objects would
interfere with the birds’ mission and hinder the chances of a
Re your statement of the “vultures.” Interesting, and unusual. Can
you send me copies of any pictures you take? This is unusual because
generally birds (warm red-blooded) have been avoiding microwave
towers, and often when they do alight on the towers large numbers of
birds are found on the ground dead. Creatures normally found on
towers, up to the height of the antennas, are roaches (cold-blooded).
Your hypothesis is probably correct; “the vultures sense death in the
air.” Sometime ago in one of my newsletters, I reported that birds
migrating to Capistrano and points south for the winter disappeared
over New Mexico. It is altogether possible that as well as
disappearing, the birds are merely falling from the sky as has been
reported in various places. In addition, any birds that would pass
over the towers will be half dead and easy prey. This is also a
As for research on the magnetite in the head of birds, which I
mentioned when this lost birds story was reported, this has already
been done extensively. In fact, Kaune the researcher who co-authored
the Linet NCI powerline study, was one of those who researched this.
And you know what this turncoat said about powerline emissions being
benign. Researchers at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere already researched
biomagnitite in the brain of animals and humans. With the loss of
birds, death and deformity of reptiles (e.g., frogs, lizards) one had
to be pretty thickheaded, a real bozo, or terribly dishonest not to
know that electrification of the air is deadly. The worst is yet to
Bees, Bat-rays and Butterflies:
Alasdair Philips , 21 Nov 1998
Our cheap transistor radios can pick up and separate out hundreds of
radio signals at levels of a few hundreds of microvolts/metre. More
sophisticated communications receivers can work down to levels of
about 10 microvolts/metre. Radio-astronomers work on informational
signals from stars at less than 1 microvolt/metre – this is a power
level of about 0.000 000 000 001 microwatt/cm2 (1 attowatt/cm2 !!).
We can now detect and create pictures from signals from spacecraft at
our outer planets using transmit powers similar to those use by
mobile phones of a few watts!
Honeybees have been shown to be sensitive to magnetic flux
differences of 1 nanotesla (10 microGauss) [Theoretically humans
could also be sensitive down to less than this level (pineal thermal
noise c. 0.24 nanotesla – Smith, 1985). Various sea creatures can
detect voltage gradients of a few 10’s of microvolts/metre.
Biological stochastic resonance from regular pulsing EMFs can
effectively amplify coherent signals (like power EMFs) by vast
What arrogant nonsense to suggest that living systems need to
be “cooked” before they realize they are being bombarded by signals
and that microwaves of 100 volts/metre are harmless to us.
On your butterfly question…many years ago (c.1969) I went to a
Friday evening London ‘Royal Institution’ lecture by Professor Eric
Laithwhaite of Imperial College London – the guy who developed the
principle of the linear electric motor which is now widely used –
whose hobby was/is butterflies and moths. At the time everyone was
talking about pheromones, and undoubtedly these are used in the
mating attraction process, however…he discovered that if the female
(I think) was enclosed in a sealed plastic box the mates still
appeared from long distances away, but if she was enclosed in a
(electromagnetically screened) Faraday cage full of air holes only
butterflies who were very close were still attracted. He repeated
these experiments on many occasions and came to the conclusion that
the patterns on the butterflies wings were actually tuned circuits in
the very high microwave region (far-far-infra red) and each variety
had its own unique RF/microwave signature enabling mates of the same
variety to home in using their antennae and own wing resonators as
tuning selectors. The main energy probably came from the sunlight
possibly modulated by wing flapping.
Our mainstream, crude, gross, simplification of life into simple
electro-chemical building blocks completely misses the mysteries of
what “life” is and how sensitive it can be if we open ourselves up to
the amazing, wonderful, cosmic universe in which we live. I do not
know how we will achieve the paradigm shift in thinking needed but I
sense that it is slowly starting to happen. I hope so, anyway.
Matthew Fox (USA) and his Creation Spirituality movement is part of
the change, along with the deep ecology movement.
… and I am meant to be a down-to-earth nuts-and-bolts engineer!
