During the winter, birds in colder climates have a poorer body condition than they would in the spring due to harsh weather and limited food resources. Poor body condition causes individuals to be more susceptible to serious infections. Gregarious species, like finches, also gather in larger flocks during the winter. This behavior increases their population density and allows for a higher rate of disease transmission within the flock.
Just like with the COVID-19 pandemic, our own actions can help curb the spread of this disease. If you live in an area with a reported outbreak, learn what you can do to prevent the spread.
One of the biggest challenges to our businesses is to keep tabs on what's happening and how it will affect our business. The Pulse of the Industry Committee met this March, see what's new with the industry!
