i'm wondering if i got a problem here... as i just watched my dog snatch another bird out of mid-flight. this is now the 4th time i have seen this; i can only guess he's also practicing when im not around, now. the only course of action i figure i have is muzzling him. They are getting crunched up and munched down.

is there a concern, with little song birds carrying diseases,fleas, worms? realize this is an odd question but figure someone may have run across something of this nature in the past. thanks, norm

I've seen worms in grouse when gutting them out.

Coccidia from bird droppings apparently.
