The first possible case of Suttonella ornithocola in Catalonia, a bacterium that produces an infectious disease on Blue tits

The last few months in Germany, there have been many dead tits reported in gardens. Recently the mystery has been solved: the cause was an infectious disease caused by a bacterial agent called Suttonella ornithocola. This microorganism is harmless for humans, but it affects tits, especially smaller species, and it causes pneumonia. The bacterium was first discovered in 1996 in England. Last March, a case was detected in the western part of Germany and for the following two months there were more than 26.000 cases reported. It has also been reported in Luxemburg, in Belgium and in the East of France. The most affected birds are blue tits, despite it's also affecting great tits (the two species that most frequently visit backyard bird feeders).

How to detect it?

Sick birds are spotted mainly in gardens, near feeders and not flying away from humans, because they do not react to environmental stimuli. Other symptomatology includes respiratory problems, loss of head feathers and eyelashes stuck together. They also stop feeding and are unable to swallow.

What about Catalonia?

On the 3rd of May of 2020, the first blue tit with this symptomatology was detected and photographed in Catalonia, specifically in Creixell (Tarragonès). The disease is very contagious between tits, so it is imperative, that if you detect any case in your garden, you should immediately remove your feeders and water containers. Moreover, to be able to survey the possible outbreak, we ask you to report all suspicious cases that you observe on the mortality module of ornitho.cat, detailing what symptomatology you have detected on the comments and, if possible, adding photos of each individual. Ringers must disinfect birdbags and not use them till they are sterilised, in each case of a captured tit (with or without symptoms). If a sick tit is captured, please, take pictures and report it on ornitho.cat, through the mortality module. 

How to report it?

To report the information on themortality module, you needto enter the information as a normal observation of the speciesand tickthe dead or injured animal checkbox. Then, the mortality module willopen. You have to indicate this as a “natural cause”and “disease/parasite”. The symptoms should be written in the comments and finally, if possible, you could also add photos weresymptoms are visible.  

Thank you for your collaboration and help. We hope to monitor and detect any cases that come in to enable us to act quickly before this disease spreads further.
