I was wondering if anyone has encountered any sick birds lately? I've had 2 different robins in my yard in a week that were just sitting there. My big dog was growling at one from about a foot away, bird didn't flinch. I squirted it with a hose and it just sat there. Finally hopped off into the much bed and was gone in a few hours. I found another one last night sitting on the sidewalk in front of my house. I took some close-up pictures of it from less than a foot away, again, it just sat there. I called ODNR, since they solicit that type of thing. The symptoms are just like West Nile's as described on their website. As I described it ODNR guy, I don't think I've ever heard anyone reply faster "there'snowestnileinohio". I asked him what else would cause that behavior. "uhm, ah, some sort of infection......" I'll catch the next one I see. Does anyone know where to get independent testing done? Normally I don't care, but I have a 14 month old daughter who loves to play outside. She's got a few mosquito bites already. I'd feel better knowing what it is.
