Nice, thanks for sharing. Smart corvid, it reminds me of childhood, "I am Corvax. I am clever."

Male on the left. Female on the right. Makes for a good comparison. He's smaller and has a shorter beak.

The hummingbirds are gone. The last one I saw this year was on October 16, feeding on some of my late-blooming flowers. I hope it was able to find enough fuel to keep it going as it headed south, but fear it may have been too late.

On a recent drive, I saw more Killdeer than I had seen in quite a while. I reckon they were getting ready to migrate.

During some of the recent brisk weather, I've seen sparrows perched on top of the tires on the south side of parked vehicles, trying to get some of the sun's warmth. Even so, they were fluffed up to ward off the chill.

Bird flu outbreak drives Nebraska to cull 1.8 million more chickens
Quote:
About 1.8 million more chickens must be killed in Nebraska to prevent the spread of a highly pathogenic bird flu virus, state officials said, as the U.S. sees its worst outbreak of the disease in seven years.

The state's latest spate of bird flu was found on an egg-laying farm in northeast Nebraska's Dixon County, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture said Saturday.

As the virus sweeps through commercial and backyard chicken and turkey flocks, agriculture officials are encouraging poultry producers to look out for signs of infection and report any cases to state or federal officials.

Nebraska, where 6.8 million birds have been affected by the outbreak, is the second worst-hit state behind Iowa, where 15.5 million birds have been culled.

This year, more than 50 million birds in 46 states have already died - mostly from being slaughtered to control the spread, but some from the deadly virus itself. It's the largest outbreak since 2015, when 50 million birds died.
