Read Our Statement on Avian Influenza

Many people are concerned about the 2022 outbreak of avian influenza, or bird flu, that is affecting domestic poultry, waterfowl, raptors, and some shorebirds in the U.S. and Canada. Please read the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s statement on the current strain (H5N1) as it relates to bird feeders and nest boxes. Learn about what you should do if you find a sick or dead bird, plus get resources for people who maintain backyard flocks or rehabilitate wild birds.
