It's happened again in Beebe. Blackbirds dying on New Year's Eve.

Beebe police tell us so far hundreds of birds have fallen from the sky. They're blaming fireworks.

Fireworks are not illegal in Beebe. But Saturday night, police placed an emergency ban on fireworks..

You may remember last year thousands of blackbirds littered the ground in Beebe.

Scientists have said the loud cracks and booms from celebratory fireworks sent the birds crashing into buildings, cars, and each other before falling to the ground December 31, 2010.

The blackbird die-off flung the state into the national headlines and drew conspiracy theorists and filmmakers to the region.
