Hi Mohamad, Currently, we can only accept data on sick birds through participation in Project FeederWatch, which begins November 9th this year. The best thing to do when you see a sick bird is to clean your feeders thoroughly, and take them down for a few days to help the sick birds disperse. There’s no foolproof way to keep sick birds from visiting your feeders as they can also catch diseases from others in nature, and at other feeders they visit, but regularly cleaning the feeders can help prevent the spread of disease. Take a look at our Sick Birds and Bird Diseases web page for more information and tips on how best to clean your feeders based on recent scientific studies. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions.
