Submission + - Shift of Earth's magnetic north pole affects Tampa (tbo.com)

RFSSystems writes: I thought this was an amazing and rather rare phenomenon and wanted to share. "The airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to repaint the numeric designators at each end and change taxiway signage to account for the shift in location of the Earth's magnetic north pole"

It appears that the shifting poles have began to effect air travel in a somewhat modest way. Could this also be the explanation for the falling/dead birds this week?
