My wild guess would be: The satellite antenna you brought with you to the campground is not accurately pointed at the satellite you're trying to receive from, and consequently the receiver can't hear the bird.

So in addition to the suggestions above, some others are: -- a bird sat on the end of the feed at the focus of the dish, and dropped a moist, radio-opaque load on it; -- the cable came loose at the dish; -- the cable got pinched in a hinge somewhere between the dish and the receiver, and broke; -- the cable came loose at the back of the receiver; -- a power supply failed somewhere, and the LNB at the dish isn't getting any power; -- the "front end" of the receiver has failed;
