animals and west nile virus
I lived in Atlanta when there was a West Nile epidemic there a few years ago and remember how many of the larger birds disappeared due to the virus. It took a few years until the crow and blue jay numbers returned to normal. I recall newspaper reports of "another blue jay found dead tested positive for West Nile" and such. Have you noticed any dead birds? I am concerned abuot my dogs and there are two fledging hawks on my street that I've watched since they hatched and am worried about them, too.
