Not to be ignorant but I have a question. I have found 3 dead birds in my yard in the past month to 6 weeks, should I be calling someone? I live in the village.

I haven't and don't believe they have either. 1 was in the pool and 1 by it and yesterday I got my mail and it's about 3 ft from the mailbox in the front of the house.

I finally did - no big deal. Triple bag them and put in garbage, let nature takes its course or bury it. Whatever you use to pick it up has to be disinfected. If I get a "fresh" one, I can put it either in my frig or a cooler and wait for them to pick it up but it has to be kept cool for any testing.

Symptoms and stages
A military doctor identifies four stages. He notes that some characters bypass a stage or stay in one stage longer than most. Some characters appear to improve for a while, only to relapse strongly afterwards.

Stage One has no frank symptoms, although the victim is infectious. Blood pressure shows unusual variations, and “wagon wheel” incubator cells are present in the sputum.

Stage Two resembles the common cold, with mild symptoms such as nasal discharge, sneezing and coughing. A low-grade fever may be present. Many characters in this stage do not limit their activities; they continue to shop, travel, or work, spreading the disease.

Stage Three at the start may resemble asthma, bronchitis, influenza, or mononucleosis. The cold-like symptoms of Stage Two become more severe. Chills, high fever, swollen lymph glands, dizziness, weakness, and painful urination develop. Most characters in this stage go to bed or try to see a doctor. Late in this stage, the illness becomes more like pneumonia; a few characters show delirium just before entering the fourth, terminal stage.

Stage Four resembles pneumonia, bubonic plague and, in some cases, hemorrhagic fever. Breathing becomes difficult and there is much swelling in the face, neck and groin. Swollen areas turn purple, then black. There is much discharge of mucus, which may be bloody. Fever is extremely high, and delirium is common. Characters in this stage are immobilized in most—but not all—cases; as in the earlier stages, any caregiver will be infected unless he or she is immune. Death is usually caused by respiratory failure.

OMG I I hope its not

C.Trips , got this in my email Foward to everyone you know , I am.

Read about dead birds being found all the way up the east coast.

Just heard the GWB admin is trying to cover this up

MORE DEADLY THAN ANTHRAX!

Plague virus known as "C. Trips" accidentally released from CDC facility in Georgia

The spread of this plague is very fast and rapidly fulminant. One military guard who had been in the presence of patients for only a few hours is shown to have begun displaying symptoms.

Pathology
this virus, a variant of influenza, is especially deadly because it is different from the common types of flu. Influenza normally mutates every couple of years or so, hence the need for flu shots. But Trips is a “constantly shifting-antigen” virus. This means the flu changes every time a person’s immune system comes to a defense posture. For the same reason, a vaccine is impossible to create. The human body can’t produce the antibodies necessary to stop an antigen-shifting virus because every time the body does produce the right antibody, the virus has already shifted to a slightly new form, negating the effect of the new antibodies. It just shifts from form to form until the body is worn out. The result, inevitably, is death.

Symptoms and stages

Stage One has no frank symptoms, although the victim is infectious. Blood pressure shows unusual variations, and incubator cells are present in the sputum.

Stage Two resembles the common cold, with mild symptoms such as nasal discharge, sneezing and coughing. A low-grade fever may be present. Many victims in this stage do not limit their activities; they continue to shop, travel, or work, spreading the disease.

Stage Three at the start may resemble asthma, bronchitis, influenza, or mononucleosis. The cold-like symptoms of Stage Two become more severe. Chills, high fever, swollen lymph glands, dizziness, weakness, and painful urination develop. Most victims in this stage go to bed or try to see a doctor. Late in this stage, the illness becomes more like pneumonia; a few victims show delirium just before entering the fourth, terminal stage.

Stage Four resembles pneumonia, bubonic plague and, in some cases, hemorrhagic fever. Breathing becomes difficult and there is much swelling in the face, neck and groin. Swollen areas turn purple, then black. There is much discharge of mucus, which may be bloody. Fever is extremely high, and delirium is common. victims in this stage are immobilized in most—but not all—cases; as in the earlier stages, any caregiver will be infected unless he or she is immune. Death is usually caused by respiratory failure.

I find dead birds all the time.

I even git dead squirrels quite often.

After many months of scientific research, the consensus seems to be that my Maine Coon cat is responsible.
