Sick Bird Feeders

Thanks to West Seattle blog for posting this on their blog about a deadly outbreak  impacting local birds from tainted feeders.

    Hi Rhonda,
    Yes, we have the Pine Siscons back and are traveling with the friendly and beautiful Goldfinches. I have a thistle feeder that has been full of these birds for the past month. I only use the upside down finch feeder and fill just half way with thistle (that way the thistle does not mold). After each day I take the feeder down and clean due to the salmonellosis outbreak. This happened several years ago and I suppose history repeats.
