The Maryland Department of the Natural Resources has followed up on reports of sick and dying birds

in the D.C. region, and are working with the USGS National Wildlife Health Center (NWHC). DNR has sent samples to NWHC for testing, and at this time the cause is unknown. We do not need any additional samples for testing -- should you encounter a dead bird we recommend that you not touch the bird and dispose of it in a plastic bag. If you encounter a sick bird, we recommend you contact a local wildlife rehabilitator, found on the DNR website here.

The MD DNR website for instructions on finding a Wildlife Rehabilitator:
