The Unidentified Bird Illness: What is it? What do we need to know?

Wednesday October 13 2021 at 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Curious about the recent, unidentified bird illness?

Join Sharon Audubon Naturalist and Volunteer Coordinator, Bethany Sheffer, in a discussion about the mysterious songbird epidemic that arose in the Eastern U.S. this year: the origin, symptoms, scientific study and comparison to other avian illnesses, and preventative actions homeowners can undertake to reduce the spread. Additionally, participants will learn about the role of Sharon Audubon’s wildlife rehabilitation clinic in addressing avian illness and its approach to avian epidemics such as this.

Co-sponsored by the Avon Library and the Avon Land Trust.

Please register and a Zoom link will be sent out before the event.
