After months of concern about birds in Indiana and across the Midwest, the Department of Natural Resources have announced that all Hoosiers can resume feeding birds.
The DNR had encouraged Indiana residents to stop feeding birds and to clean bird feeders and baths after an undetermined illness was found to cause neurological illnesses and deaths. More than 750 cases were reported in 76 counties, according to the DNR.
On Friday the department said Hoosiers can resume feeding birds – if they would like to and if no sick or dead birds have been found nearby.
Indiana’s DNR wants Hoosiers to continue reporting any sick or dead birds to their website. The DNR also encourages those who feed birds to clean feeders every two weeks with soap and water, followed by a 10% bleach solution, and then a thorough rinse.
On Wednesday evening, the Envision Ellettsville group will host their first planning meeting at 6:00 pm. The program is open to the public and is the start of a discussion on the future of housing, business, roadways, recreation and more in the community west of Bloomington.
