Found 5 dead birds under the same tree.

Asked August 9, 2017, 6:00 PM EDT

My husband has found 3 starlings, an orielo and a small woodpecker. The tree is in our front yard they were found. He found a startling and the wood pecker today. He cut the grass yesterday. Should we be worried about disease or electrocution from the wires at the top of the tree.

Thanks for sharing this information. It could be disease, it could also be a predator. You can report dead and diseased wildlife to the Michigan DNR at If they feel it is an issue, they may follow up with you for more information.
