More bird deaths - this time in Romania, and an explanation too - binge drinking.

:faint: Apparently nobody told the poor birds that booze only makes you THINK you are warm in winter. Poor birds, but they probably "felt no pain" when they expired! :shake: (I know, a poor joke.)

And I heard the Italian birds died of over consumption (of some kind of seed?).

I notice often birds don't eat all that much fresh fruit, but the last time I was at Finley Wildlife refuge, which has a fair number of apple trees as a former farm area, I noticed the Towees were absolutely munching down on the apples -- I suppose alcohol might have been a danger for them.

Dishwashers are a source of pathological fungii
According to The British Mycological Society journal published recently: fungii from dishwashers are harmful.
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 29#FCANote

from our newspaper yesterday. The consequences I don't know. :puzzled:
Nor the solution.( have'nt read the full article...and there is,maybe copyright)

edit: e.g.Exopiala fungus is reported elsewhere in the home. Like bathroom,in the sauna,Turkish baths.
Its a fungus that loves 42° PLUS temps. for profligation.
I think its that black trace left around the bathtub or washing machine. :shock:
Its harmful.

I just saw this topic the other day and this is the first chance I have had to post in it.

In regards to the red-wing blackbirds, found dead. This did not happen only in Arkansas. It also happened in Louisiana, as well, just days apart.

A lot of us in the owl groups were discussing it at the time it happened and I know the findings were that it must be because of fireworks and I quickly pointed out that this NEVER happens on the 4th of July, so why only one specific holiday, rather than any holiday that fireworks are set off?

I seriously doubt that it was the fireworks that caused them to fly to their deaths. :cry:
