Pine Siskins Still Dying 03-06-21 06:43 S.S.

People who are still feeding the wild birds are asked to stop doing so....at least until the end of this month. That's because Pine Siskins (who have been wintering here), and other small songbirds, are getting sick and dying from Salmonellosis....which oftens spreads when birds congregate at bird feeders, because birds shed the bacteria in their feces (which lands on the feeder, and on the seed and ground below the feeders).

People are asked to remove and clean their wild bird feeders, and put them away until the Pine Siskins continue their migration. People are also encouraged to report sick or dying birds to the S.P.C.A.

California says it will now set aside 40% of all vaccine doses for the state’s most vulnerable neighborhoods.

The doses will be spread out among 400 ZIP codes with about 8 million people eligible for shots. Many of the neighborhoods are concentrated in Los Angeles County and the Central Valley.
