Careful putting birds outdoors!

A pneumonia-like virus was found in blue tits in UK and, if blue tits have it, other species have it too so, taking into consideration that some of the UK species migrate to US, please be careful about taking birds outdoors.

Another reason to be careful: West Nile virus is still out there and spreading!
