Report a Dead Bird

Help us protect you and your community by reporting dead birds and squirrels. Our District and the California Department of Public Health use dead bird reports to help identify increased West Nile virus activity in an area. Crows and magpies are particularly susceptible to the disease, so they make excellent early warning sentinels for virus activity.

If you see a bird that has been dead for less than 24 hours, please call 1-877-WNV-BIRD (1-877-968-2473) or report it online here.

 


Did you know?
In the interest of science, Arctic researchers uncovered their chests, arms, and legs and reported as many as 9,000 mosquito bites per person, per minute. At this rate, an unprotected human would lose one half of his or her blood supply in approximately 2 hours! That's amazing!
