Northern cardinal

Cardinalis cardinalis


Birds carry ticks that spread diseases to humans after they have fed on intermediate hosts such as rodents and mammals. There are also ticks that infect birds (Ixodes brunneus); they can cause paralysis and the birds then may die if the tick is not removed. So far, it seems that the birds in this vicinity are carrying other ticks.
