PostSubject: Attn Gulf Coast Bird Owners - Medical Alert   Sun May 02, 2010 9:08 am

This was posted on another forum. I posted here because I thought it
would be seen more often.

Attn Gulf Coast
Bird Owners - Medical Alert

I received the following email today:

From Dr Tom Tully:

We are seeing a hatch of the southern buffalo gnat. These gnats have a
very toxic bite and we have had a number of deaths
associated with the bites starting at the end of last week. Please let
everyone know that this is a very serious problem for
outdoor aviaries and will cause serious problems to birds even deaths.
It appears regular screen will keep the gnats out.

Birds that are affected will appear depressed and especially with macaws
will have swollen red face patches where there are
no feathers. This appears to be a problem all along the Gulf coast.
Please let everyone know that has birds.

Any questions please let me know.

Many thanks, Dr. Tully
