We are monitoring the bird disease in the mid-Atlantic.

Alert Date: July 21, 2021

Mass Audubon is in conversations with MassWildlife and other colleagues about the risk posed to Massachusetts birds by the ongoing avian disease outbreak in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern US. While the disease has not been confirmed in Massachusetts, out of an abundance of caution Mass Audubon and MassWildlife have decided to recommend taking down bird feeders and birdbaths until the current outbreak is over.

If you spot a dead or sick bird, please email reports to Mass Wildlife via this form and include your location, number and species of birds, symptoms observed, and any photos. Read more.
