About the bird deaths in nearby states

Here is a link to an article about the bird deaths occurring in a number of states. We provide our summary of the article and add our local take on the issue.

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2021/07/songbirds-are-mysteriously-dying-across-eastern-us-scientists-are-scrambling-find-out

From the article:

- In May, a large die-off of birds was first recognized in and around Washington, D.C.
- Researchers have documented hundreds of cases in at least a dozen species of birds in nine eastern and midwestern states.
- State, federal, and academic scientists are hunting for clues to a cause.
- Last week, it was reported that studies have ruled out a number of agents known to cause mass mortality in birds, including Salmonella bacteria, several families of viruses, and Trichomonas parasites, though what IS causing it is still unknown.
- The cicada emergence was suspected but has also been eliminated as a cause.
- Most cases involve just four species—common grackles, blue jays, American robins, and European starlings.
- Young birds appear to be especially susceptible.
- The outbreak doesn’t appear to pose a serious threat to bird populations.
- Officials in several states indicate there are signs that the outbreak might be easing.

LOCALLY

  • We have not heard of occurrences in our area, either from the authorities or from our customers.
  • As always, you can help stem the spread of disease with good bird feeder maintenance:
    - Clean bird feeders regularly with a weak bleach solution (1 part bleach to 9 parts water).
    - Ensure that the food in bird feeders loose and dry. Discard of spoiled seed in the trash.
    - Regularly rake up debris from beneath your bird feeders and discard in the trash.
    - Occasionally (we do it spring and fall) move bird feeding set-ups. Even just a couple feet or more can help.
    - Change the water in your bird bath frequently, scrubbing the dish clean before refilling. A weak bleach solution can also be used to clean a bird bath bowl.
