Are you concerned about the recent reports of die-offs with migratory birds in the Southwest? You can help New Mexico better understand what's happening by submitting your observations and photos online!

Check out the "Southwest Avian Mortality Project" in the iNaturalist app at https://www.inaturalist.org/ and submit photos, descriptions, as well as the date, time, and location of any dead birds that you observe.

Thanks for your help!

Hundreds of dead migrant birds have been reported in the state of New Mexico during August and September 2020. With increasing awareness, reports have also come from Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. Help the birds by reporting avian mortalities encountered in the Southwest United States and Mexico. Please photograph any avian mortalities and include information about location, time, and contact info to help wildlife biologists understand the extent of this mass mortality. https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/southwest-avian-mortality-project

Our thoughts are with all of those experiencing the wildfires out West. Thank you to the men and women who are bravely fighting these fires.

Our thoughts are with local communities, #firefighters, our employees and everyone else who is facing the unprecedented impacts of the devastating #wildfires out west. Stay safe out there! #FireYear2020
