The Birdman Cometh

It's going to start with an exact replica of what happened in Beebe, Arkansas, but that what really happens in the book is the first conversion of a man into a birdman and the transformation causes the bird deaths. He and the birds get caught in the alien rays and fuse somehow. I gotta figure that last part out. But the aliens want to start the birdman wars to flesh out the humans and start a new race capable of living on their planet which requires wings and they are losing population. So they seek our conversion and subsequent ferry to their homeland after global warming takes unprecedented effect in 2012. Everyone wins. But at the beginning the lone birdman roams free... hearing the news of the birds.. his own disappearance a mere blip on the regional news radar.. Soon he unites with other birdmen... in Italy, Sweden.. they start using the news stories to locate new members until they are spotted. then. pandemonium. Nobody knows what to do with them. war breaks out. they are increasingly difficult to hit and they may or may not have laser guns. fishmen also arise, but are a mere hapazard offshoot of the intentional beast: Birdman.

However, late in the book it is a fishman that gives the CIA info to where birdmen's leader is kept. The CIA get this information by, ironically, waterboarding him. Humans remain glued to the controversial coverage of fishman's waterboarding while millions of Birdmen lift to the sky and aboard the alien ships, never questioning the effect this will have on their lives tomorrow..

       So, turns out Beebe, Arkansas was named after someone named *Roswell* Suspicious, eh?

       Suspect, shirley?

       What frequency are alien rays, by the way?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 07 2011
  

       Pedantic, eh? (Ouch. Good call.)

       [MB], once every couple of days, so far it seems.   

       That Roswell bit really freaked me out, thanks [mouseposture]!

       It's even spookier that he spells his name with two stars like that.

       Perhaps it indicates the constellation of his home planet?

       Why don't you ask Kenneth?

       'Twas on a Monday morning that the Birdman came to call
An alien ray had zapped him - just to start a birdman brawl.
The aliens' life is waning
And they need some new recruits
So they've raised a Swedish army
Dressed in rubber birdman suits!
Oh it all makes work for the CIA to do...
etc.

       Yay, Dr. Bob. More more more...
