Songbird Mortality Updates

NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife has announced a new morbidity/mortality event that is happening among nestling and fledgling songbirds since mid-May. This unidentified illness is mainly affecting Blue Jays, Starlings, and Grackles. It has also started to appear in Robins and Cardinals. The event’s epicenter appears to be Washington, D.C., but it also extends to the Southeast and eastern upper Midwest. Cases are now starting to be seen in New Jersey. Still no further information about what is causing this heartbreaking situation.
