Hello Wild Side Readers!
Have you seen or heard about an illness in Ohio affecting songbirds? If so, the attached handout has some information on the mysterious disease. At this time, biologists are unclear as to what is causing birds to get sick, but diagnostic laboratories, including the National Wildlife Health Center, are on the case. Check out the below publication for more information and what you can do to help.
In addition, the Ohio Division of Wildlife has created a new webpage for sharing updates and easy access to their reporting websites.
