Illinois DNR Asking Residents To Remove Bird Feeders

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is asking residents across the state to stop using bird baths and feeders. The recommendation was announced Saturday and runs through the end of May. The new announcement is being issued because of a highly contagious strain of avian flu going through the midwest. The state DNR is saying any resident that finds five or more dead birds in one location should call a department Wildlife Biologist.
