Reduce Disease Transmission at Bird Feeders

There are five steps to keep your bird feeders safe and clean: 1) provide birds with a large amount of space for feeding, 2) keep the birds' feeders and ground area clean of both seed and hulls and bird droppings, 3) purchase bird feeders that do not have sharp points or edges, 4) regularly clean your bird feeders, and 5) store bird food appropriately and ensure that fresh seed is in your feeder.  If diseased birds are found at your bird feeders, taking down your feeders for an approximate two-week period may aid in the dispersal of birds and reduce the probability of healthy birds coming into contact with unhealthy ones.
