      We are discussing the possible reasons on Nature Net's Bird Watching
      Forum ( http://nature.gardenweb.com/forums/bird ) and they are running
      the gamut from nutritional deficiencies to the age factor. Somehow, I
      remember Penny Seaman telling me that George Chaniot or one of the other
      ornithologists in this group had read the actual reason, and I would
      like to know.

      Thanks in Advance,

      Feather
