Exclamation They are now saying Robins are a carrier

Hi all,

They are now saying that Robins are the biggest carrier of the west nile disease.

I seen that on a news channel the other night.

So watch it, there are more Robins per capital than Crows all over the United States.

How would you get West Nile from a robin?

Because the mosquitos are biting them. They have taken blood samples from Robins and almost all of the Robins they took the blood from have West Nile Disease.

Look it up on the internet, you will find stories.

Re: They are now saying Robins are a carrier

I must say, that you're more likely to get it from a mosquito than a robin(let alone any other bird)! If it were the robins who had it and not the dang mosquitos, then it might not be as bad. I don't think you'll have to worry about a robin swooping down to bite ya though.
