To help support our native fish populations as well as wildlife like the iconic loon, Maine Audubon has created public service announcements to encourage people to fish with wildlife in mind this season.
While avian flu poses a serious risk to domestic fowl (such as chickens, turkeys, pheasants, quail, domestic ducks, geese, and guinea fowl), it is not known to affect songbirds or other ‘feeder birds’ so there is no risk to those groups at this time. Specifically, there is not a need to take down bird feeders or to stop feeding wild birds, unless you also take care of poultry.
Maine Audubon initiatives bring together elements of conservation, community engagement, advocacy, and education.
