The Online Dead Bird Reporting System for West Nile Virus (WNV) surveillance has been discontinued. Research has shown that testing local mosquito populations is the best way to detect the presence of WNV. The Clark County Mosquito Control District will continue to actively monitor and test local mosquito populations.
We wish to thank community members who have diligently reported dead birds over the past years. Your partnership and dedication are much appreciated.
Other state agencies monitor dead birds for avian influenza throughout the year. For questions or reporting, please contact:
- Wild bird die-offs (multiple birds) – Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife
- Domestic poultry – Washington State Department of Agriculture at 1.800.606.3056.
- Handling dead birds
- Do not handle dead birds with your bare hands. Use, gloves, a shovel or a plastic bag over your hand to pick up a dead bird.
- Double-wrap the bird in two plastic bags and dispose of in your household garbage.
- Do not bring dead birds to Public Health.
