I’ve been worried about the house finches

And it turns out that there’s good reason to be worried. This
is happening. All across the US. And the disease originated with chickens and turkeys. Don’t want to, but it may be time to stop feeding the birds. This explains so much that I’ve seen over the past couple of years. Birds with swollen eyes. Dead finches in the yard. The link is to a study that’s been halted for lack of funding. I also found the art of one of my favorite bloggers with the article.

I’m really kind of horrified. It doesn’t surprise me at all that it originated with humans. We keep breaking the world in ways that we can’t fix. It worries me a lot.
