The DNR has withdrawn its recommendation that Indiana residents refrain from feeding birds in all counties. Indiana residents can reposition their bird feeders if they feel comfortable doing so and don't see sick or dead birds in their yard. That includes Allen, Carroll, Clark, Floyd, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Lake, Marion, Monroe, Morgan, Porter, St. INDIANAPOLIS Indianaans can now resume feeding birds, DNR announced today.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana residents in Indiana's 92 counties can resume feeding birds, the Department of Natural Resources announced. The DNR had recommended a state moratorium on bird feeding earlier this summer to stop the spread of an undetermined disease that kills birds across the state. Indiana residents can turn off their feeders again if they feel comfortable doing so and don't see sick or dead birds in their yards. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources recommends that biologists from nine counties (Allen, Hamilton, Hendricks, Johnson, Lake, Marion, Monroe, Porter and St.) identify more than 750 possible cases in 76 counties involving symptoms such as eye crusts, eye flow and neurological problems.
STATEWIDE All but nine counties in Indiana are getting the green light to reinstall bird feeders. Biologists identified more than 750 possible cases in 76 counties that involved a specific set of clinical signs, such as eye crusts, eye flow and neurological problems. The DNR believes that the disease constantly affects specific areas, so it is lifting its moratorium on poultry feeding in most Indiana counties. Indiana's environmental reports are supported by the Institute for Environmental Resilience, an Indiana University Great Challenge project that develops specific projections for Indiana and informed responses to problems of environmental change.
INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) In many Indiana counties, Indiana residents can return to feeding birds after the DNR imposed a state moratorium on bird feeding more than two weeks ago to stop the spread of mysterious bird deaths. After more than a month of keeping their bird feeders inside to slow the spread of an unknown disease that kills birds across Indiana, Hoosiers residents in 76 counties can now pull out those bird feeders again, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources announced Monday. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources said Thursday that it is safe for people in most Indiana counties to feed birds again. The department said Friday that Indiana residents can turn off their feeders again if they feel comfortable doing so and don't find sick or dead birds in their yards.
INDIANAPOLIS residents in nine Indiana counties must continue to keep their bird feeders safely stored. This week's new guidance means that people in Indiana's other 83 counties can use their bird feeders.
