(ORDO NEWS) — Songbirds have begun to die in the Central Atlantic United States. Many individuals were found to have strange tumors, discharge from the eyes. Another part suffered from swelling of the head and could not raise it. Experts noted the presence of neurological symptoms – tremors, erratic flights, balance problems, and more.
Reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer.
In Indiana, 280 dead and sick birds have been found since early May. The disease has been observed in various bird species. Experts began to conduct toxicological tests. They did not show the exact cause of the damage to the birds, but they helped to exclude the presence of the bird flu virus, salmonella and some other diseases.
Lisa Murphy said that even the autopsies did not help to get any closer to the solution. The symptoms observed in birds are characteristic of many pathologies, but none of them has been confirmed.
To date, experts continue to deal with this issue and are trying to establish the reasons for the death of songbirds. In addition, they urge citizens to keep their pets at home, not to feed the birds and thereby not provoke the spread of the disease. Experts hope to soon establish not only the reasons, but also understand how to deal with the detected pathogen of an unknown pathology.
