Newly discovered virus a prime suspect in often-fatal beak disorder
spreading among birds

Please submit a report... #SeeSomethingSaySomething

If you encounter a bird in the wild with a particularly curved, crossed, or
elongated beak, you can help by submitting an observation report with the
species type, behavior, the time and location of your sighting, and any
accompanying photographs. "The power of citizen science can help us
