In summary, due to salmonella reported in Pine Siskins and other finches,
the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and National
Audubon recommend removing your feeders and bird baths for some time
period. I would add scatter your seed about the yard in leaf piles and
other natural feeding locations - social distancing in birds. FACT CHECK
what you hear with scientific sources like eBird, or California
Department of Fish and Games information under salmonella and Pine
Siskin. Both Oregon and Washington have similar posts regarding dying
Pine Siskins. I heard it was on the North Coast, now to the San
Francisco Bay Area. Today I read that Redding and now Sacramento have
reported deaths. Please check this website for more details.
