DNR REPORT, they’re receiving reports of sick and dying birds. DNR recommends  Indiana residents cease feeding all birds statewide.  Bird feeders, bird baths, and other sources that encourage the congregation of wild birds should be taken down or discontinued. Feeders and baths should be cleaned with 10% bleach solution and stored until more information is available. 

Residents who find birds with eye or head swelling , crusty discharge around the eyes, and/or neurological signs etc. should submit the sighting to the DNR’s sick or dead wildlife reporting system.  Biologists are actively tracking reports and samples have been submitted to the Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory.  No definitive cause of death has been identified at the this time.
