Indiana DNR: Birds now can be fed in all 92 counties

Regional News

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Hoosiers in all 92 Indiana counties can resume feeding birds.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources had recommended a statewide moratorium on bird feeding earlier this summer to slow the spread of an undetermined illness killing birds across the state.

Biologists identified more than 750 possible cases in 76 counties that involved symptoms including crusty eyes, eye discharge and neurological issues.

The department said Friday that residents throughout Indiana may again put out their feeders if they’re comfortable doing so and aren’t finding sick or dead birds in their yards.
