Bird droppings

I have been watching the conversations about the dangers of bird droppings
and I am becoming rather alarmed. I live in a small apartment complex (one
circle) that surrounds a small lake (pond, actually). Anyway, we have what
seems like thousands of ducks and Canadian geese living around us. I
constantly find droppings on my deck, on the sidewalks, and around my car.
These birds have become rather used to humans and will come fairly close to
us. I have lived there for three years and I have never known that I could
possibly be in any danger of becoming ill from these wonderful birds that I
love to feed and watch!
Does anyone know if these types of birds also pose a threat of lung disease?

Concerned in South Bend,
