Middle Creek 2021 sparrow and chickadee at bird feeder

A sparrow and chickadee at a feeder outside the closed Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area visitor center on Museum Road in Lancaster County Thursday, February 15, 2021. After a mysterious deadly illness started showing up in songbirds in Mid-Atlantic states in May moved into Pennsylvania, the game commission suggested all bird feeders be taken down and birdbaths emptied to slow the spread of the unknown disease.

After the Pennsylvania Game Commission announced July 1 that residents across the state should take down their bird feeders and empty their birdbaths to stop the spread of a mystery bird illness, did you?

We would like readers to share why they have or have not followed the recommendation.
