The Mystery Plague That Is Killing Countless Birds In 9 States And Washington D.C. Has Gotten A Lot Worse

    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

    Large numbers of birds are dropping dead from a “mystery disease” throughout much of the eastern half of the country, and scientists still have absolutely no idea why this is happening.  They have tested the dead birds for a whole host of known illnesses, but those tests have not revealed the cause of this plague.

    We are being told that a lot of the affected birds appear to develop neurological problems, and many of them go completely blind before they finally die.  The “mystery disease” has spread to more states since I first wrote about this plague, and at this point, the list of affected areas includes Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana.  If authorities are unable to find a solution, will this plague eventually spread across the entire nation?

    I don’t know why the mainstream media is not giving this story more coverage, because this is quickly turning into a major crisis.

    The following comes directly from a statement that was posted late last week on the official website of the USGS

    In late May, wildlife managers in Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Kentucky began receiving reports of sick and dying birds with eye swelling and crusty discharge, as well as neurological signs. More recently, additional reports have been received from Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. While the majority of affected birds are reported to be fledgling common grackles, blue jays, European starlings and American robins, other species of songbirds have been reported as well. No definitive cause(s) of illness or death have been determined at this time. No human health or domestic livestock and poultry issues have been reported.

    The natural resource management agencies in the affected states and the District of Columbia, along with the National Park Service, are continuing to work with diagnostic laboratories to investigate the cause(s) of this event. Those laboratories include the USGS National Wildlife Health Center, the University of Georgia Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, the University of Pennsylvania Wildlife Futures Program and the Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory.

    With each passing day, more birds are going blind and more birds are dying.

    In Virginia, an animal control professional named Jennifer Toussaint will never forget the first time that she encountered baby blue jays that had been afflicted by this mysterious illness

    Jennifer Toussaint, chief of animal control in Arlington, Virginia, can’t forget the four baby blue jays. In late May, worried residents had delivered the fledglings to her clinic just outside of Washington, D.C., within just a few hours. Each was plump, indicating “their parents had done a great job caring for them,” Toussaint says. But the birds were lethargic, unable to keep their balance, and blinded by crusty, oozing patches that had grown over their eyes.

    Toussaint and her staff soon reached a gloomy diagnosis: the jays were the latest victims of a mysterious deadly disease that had emerged in their area just a few weeks earlier and had already killed countless wild birds. There was no known treatment, so they euthanized the jays. “It was difficult to feel so helpless,” Toussaint recalls.

    Experts have never seen anything like this before, and they are in a race to try to find some answers.

    Whatever is causing this, it appears to be affecting a wide range of species

    Several species of birds have been affected by the mystery illness, according to the University of Pennsylvania: blue jay, European starling, common grackle, American robin, northern cardinal, house finch, house sparrow, Eastern bluebird, red-bellied woodpecker, Carolina chickadee, and Carolina wren.

    And at this point, the “mystery disease” appears to have spread very widely.

    For example, in the state of Virginia, there have been confirmed reports “in the counties and cities of Alexandria, Arlington, Clarke, Fairfax, Falls Church, Fauquier, Frederick, Loudoun, Manassas, Prince William, Shenandoah, Warren, and Winchester.”

    In Indiana, cases have now been identified in 53 different counties.

    So if this is something that is spreading from bird to bird, it is spreading very easily and it is spreading very rapidly.

    But at this point, we don’t know for sure that it is some sort of a disease, because so far all of the tests that have been done haven’t come up with much of anything….

    Natural resource management agencies in all of the affected states and D.C. are working with the National Park Service to investigate this event.

    So far, several infectious agents have not been detected in any of the birds that have been tested, including Salmonella and Chlamydia, avian influenza, West Nile virus and other flaviviruses, Newcastle disease virus and other paramyxoviruses, herpesviruses and poxviruses, and Trichomonas parasites.

    Something other than a disease could potentially be causing this plague.

    We just don’t know.

    At one point it was being theorized that eating cicadas was causing these birds to become ill, but scientists appear to have ruled this theory out

    But the cicadas appear to be blameless. Birds tend to avoid eating fungus-ridden cicadas, and sick birds have been observed in areas where cicadas were rare. “It does not look like it’s a match,” says Brian Evans, a migratory bird ecologist with the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute.

    So many strange things have been happening in 2021.

    As I discussed yesterday, right now we are witnessing a horrifying plague of grasshoppers in the western half of the country, and at the same time, we have a nightmarish plague of dead birds in the eastern half of the country.

    On top of everything else, we are right in the midst of a “megadrought” which may end up becoming the worst in the entire history of our nation.

    Many believe that it is just a “coincidence” that so many bad things are happening to us all at once, and perhaps they are correct.

    But nobody can deny that our world has gotten a whole lot crazier over the last couple of years, and I expect quite a bit more craziness during the second half of 2021.

      1. Uhhhhhhh, HAARP, 5G, GEOENGINEERING, A plethora of crap….

        • DITTO G, and chem trails, pesticides like Glyphosate, killing entire food chains, which leads to starvation, and water poisoning, etc.

        • I 2nd that!

      2. Covid 21 – Revenge of the Birds. Time to mask-up again.

      3. I remember a story told to me by the NSA asset detailed to Mohamad Atta in 2000.He claimed to have tea with Atta to practice his Arabic once week. I live near by Atta’s last address at the Homing Inn on Federal Highway.
        Over a series of conversations the asset confided in me that Atta had claimed to release West Nile virus in central park when he first came to USA in late 1999. I wonder if something similar has happened here or if it is just the spike protein shedding of the vaxxed there.

      4. Genius you may be right.
        Since nothing viral can be found, no one in this report mentioned toxins, microwaves like what was done to the US embassy personnel in Cuba, and of course the new 5G transmissions from the towers.

        One of the circuit boards installed for 5G towers has COV 19 printed on it. I suspect this is to manipulate those who took the “vaccine” since the vaxxed emit high frequencies and they are magnetic……

        .while these migratory birds have built in magnetite in their beaks, and can detect magnetic fields in their eyes with Flavins. These 5g frequencies mess up the way a bird sees and navigates, and may be why they go blind and dizzy when these COV 19 circuit board 5g transmissions started earlier this past April and May.

        This is nasty stuff. 5g cell tower emissions are a far more chronic, insidious type of radiation that pervades our world and found in high concentrations in the east.

      5. Test for covid – probably from sewage seeping into the water table

      6. I live in NJ. It’s true. Even my Son mentioned it to me.

      7. Could Graphene oxide in aerosol form cause this?

      8. 5G RF energy. I wonder if there is a correlation between the 5G states and the migratory paths of the affected birds. Let your mind wonder. “A study of a typical household microwave oven conducted by Michal Soltysiak, Malgorzata Celuch, and Ulrich Erle, and published in IEEE’s Microwave Symposium Digest, found that the oven’s frequency spectrum contained several broad peaks that spanned from 2.40 to 2.50 GHz”. Then I guess it would become a matter of proximity and signal strength.

        • A lot of things seem to have corresponded with the roll out of 5G.

          Some of them new, or in new areas, and some just magnified to levels not seen before.

          Coincidence or correlation?

          No one really knows and no one seems much interested in investigating to find out.

          The world we live in today.

      9. I tend to agree with the theory that all of these cellular tower frequencies are most likely to blame for at least some of these bird deaths.

        On the other hand, I have a bird feeder outside of my home office window – and I can see an amazing number of different bird species dropping by for a breakfast snack every morning – although, I have not seen any blue-jays.

        I also will occasionally toss out pieces of stale bread in the front yard – and within a few hours, dozens of really large black birds – species unknown to my untrained eye – will arrive out of nowhere and devour those bread fragments.

        And, for the record – I have not found any dead birds lying on my property. Not saying that I doubt this story – but, if they are dropping out of the sky, they must be doing it somewhere else.

      10. Birds will land in the tree at about eye level, stare you in the face, and they’re panting. If you plant forage, instead of hardtop, run a little sprinkler over a bowl, it cures the mystery plague of 120F temps, with a little bird party.

        Warning. Triggering to death cultists:

        “The clouds in this image of the Amazon Rainforest are a result of evapotranspiration.”
        — Wikipedia

      11. In my opinion it’s likely that the effects of geo-engineering (chem-trails) are having on the environment. Chem-trails are loaded with high concentrations of heavy metals (any metal in sufficient concentration becomes toxic), and a variety of toxic chemicals, none which are found naturally in the atmosphere, or in the environment for that matter. Besides birds, it’s also responsible for the disappearance of amphibians, varieties of fresh water fish, and other species associated with a wet environment.
        Humans are next.
        Nameless and faceless entities are doing their damndest, as much as they can get away with, to render humanity dead or sterile or sick (for examples, either directly with GMO foods and vaccinations, or indirectly with 5G or through destruction of the environment with chem-trailing). Besides sterility, populations of humans are experiencing large numbers of neurological, gland/hormonal, blood-based, and body chemistry related diseases and disorders, far more than the historical average, not merely in numbers, but also in percentages.
        A second theory for bird deaths are cell phone/microwave/5G towers. It is believed signals and energy waves can confuse and disorient birds to the point of making them behave contrary to their own instincts.
        Of course the gov’t, with all it bureaus, administrations, offices, commissions, agencies, institutes, boards, departments, etc., knows all this, so why are all these things being utilized?

      12. suicide! even birds can’t stand liberal States and cities

      13. I have in my place since 04 and this year several species of birds did NOT show up, the Wrens, Bluebirds and phoebes. this has never happened before also since early spring I have not seen a single honey bee. Bad things are here and will get worse.

      14. Do a follow up showing which states have the most dead birds.

        Prolly them blue states cuz more people got the shot and started shedding spiked protein. That’s wut killed em…a lefty spiked their food…

        • Good one

      15. In the last days one third of all animal life will DIE. The writing is on the wall
