Update on the dead cormorant

The Audubon Society has retained tissue samples from the cormorant in case we encounter more dead birds..

If we find more dead birds, we can order a test for Garlon3 substances - that poison which Pen2 is using.

Wildlife said that while cause of death for the cormorant was likely from aspergilossis, it is possible in theory that the fungal infection was secondary and some kind of environmental poisoning contributed to it. We have no evidence as yet of harm due to ingestion of the spray.
