Bird Watching (UK) - - Garden Birds -

Disease has been a ma­jor fac­tor hit­ting the pop­u­la­tion of cer­tain gar­den birds. Green­finches, for ex­am­ple, suf­fered a pop­u­la­tion crash in re­cent years as a re­sult of tri­chomono­sis, a disease trans­mit­ted through bird feed­ers. Dis­in­fect and clean all your feed­ers reg­u­larly, and move them around from one spot to another in the gar­den, to avoid a build-up of spilled food be­neath them.
