Panic among wildlife experts as unusual number of birds are suddenly going blind and dying around Washington DC


Panic An unusual number of birds are suddenly going blind and dying in the area around Washington DC, puzzling wildlife experts.

DC resident Alexandra Dimsdale found a young grackle stumbling around outside her home on Saturday.

After taking it to City Wildlife, a rehabilitation centre in the northwest part of the capital, a member of staff told her there was nothing they could do. She learned that the bird probably had some kind of neurological illness, causing it to go blind.

We can’t do anything for it, but we can put it out of its misery, was the staffer’s verdict according to Ms Dimsdale.

The worker also told her that they had seen other birds with similar afflictions. An unusual number of blind birds have been found dead or dying in the area around Washington DC recently. Wildlife experts don’t know what’s behind it.

The Animal Welfare League in Arlington, Virginia just outside of DC have released a public service announcement about the spike in calls they have been getting about injured and sick young birds, mostly concerning grackles and blue jays.

Eye issues were reported in what otherwise looked like healthy juvenile birds, causing blindness and the birds to land and stay on the ground, the Animal Welfare League said. “Animal Control is now seeing additional species of birds affected. Other agencies and localities across the region and state are reporting similar issues at this time.

The League is working with a biologist from the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources to perform tests on some of the dead birds, the announcement added.

It remains unclear whether what’s causing the deaths of the birds is contagious to, or caused by, humans.

A post on the site Nextdoor said: “Has anyone had a sudden increase of dead birds in their yard? We found one dying in our backyard a week ago, one dead in our front yard this week and our neighbours have also reported dead birds over the last week or so.

Hundreds of comments were written on the post by people in the DC area.

Just found a poor bird in front yard… Still alive, but not doing well. Head is extremely swollen and eyes are bulging. Possibly a young Mockingbird,” one comment said.

A blue jay died in our yard a few weeks ago. It was acting strangely, like it couldn’t move its feet. It’s mate was trying to help — it was sad. My husband tried to pick it up with gloves, and it just suddenly died. We thought it had been poisoned because it had no wounds & seemed dazed and stiff,” another added.

Ms Dimsdale explained that the amount of dying birds has “surprised and alarmed” her.

When something is happening on a large scale in nature, it’s frightening to think about,” she added. “I’m worried this is the canary in the coal mine.

Specialists baffled

The Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources said that the majority of the reports they have received about the issue have come from Arlington, but they have also received notices from Maryland and the city of Winchester in the Shenandoah Valley.

Megan Kirchgessner at the department saidThe volume of reports and clinical signs are not suggestive of something that we have seen routinely in this area, so we may be dealing with an emerging or novel issue.

Online speculations say cicadas sprayed with pesticides which are then eaten by birds could be behind the problem.

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington tweeted:

Megan Kirchgessner said testing is required to verify what the bird deaths are caused by but added that “pesticide use is on the differential list”.

It’s terribly scary,” said Jim Monsma, the executive director of City Wildlife. “It’s horrifying particularly because we don’t know what this is… We don’t know how to treat it. We don’t know how to save these birds.” [The Independent, TWP]

  1. Check for spike protein. Vaccinated people are spike protein machines now. Making it 24/7. Birds need checked for it since people are shedding. Side effects has blindness listed in 50 plus people. Neurological disorders is another side effect.

  2. Why isn’t anyone investigating the possibility that this is connected to the Directed Energy Weapon attacks on DC?

    • Hmmm, that is a good point. They probably won’t investigate it though. 5G will be one of their population pruning tools. They won’t tip their hand, until more people die from the vax in a few years, and they disarm the population. Then they can bring in the terminator drones and mop up the remaining Patriots.

      Then the satanic elites can be happy pedocannibals, and do whatever they want.

      • I think the directed microwave attacks, DEW weapons, bioweapons/vax, and 5G are the main ways they will depopulate. They will start using it all at once —on the peons. Or with 5G, target specific peons.

  3. Has everyone noticed that there is almost no birdsong in the mornings anymore? In the summer, they used to start singing around 4:30 am now there is nothing but silence. All the beautiful little songbirds are gone…………..

    • Not up here in the mountains. My barn swallows are making their nests. Got a dozen doves matching up again. Blue jays and orioles too.

      Seems normal here?

  4. The actual new strain of COVID, not the fake one they said about India and South Africa. Wait for the “real” next wave.

  5. Washington D.C. needs to be boiled for 10 minutes before consuming.
    On second thought, better make it 20 minutes..

  6. Yes, and the elite want the peons to eat cicadas. There’s even a taco joint which features cicada tacos now.

    Sounds like poisoning via cicada as the vector. I was going to blame redchineseys, but in this case, it looks like our own monsters did this in all likelihood.

    Pretty soon our culture will evolve to such a low I.Q. that we will be unable to run a country properly.

    Pray alot!

    • Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

      1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

      • Grackles and blue jays will eat like any corvid. The stinky rotting corpse meats, all kinds of disgusting things. No surprise they would be showing up sickly. Wonder if they should do autopsy, and see what is in the crop and stomach? That’s what I would do if I were in the field hunting.
