Subject: Re: [Tweeters] dead bird reporting -
I just used that site today to report a dead Canada goose I found on the beach at Discovery Park. The bird had no visible signs of trauma, so I assumed avian flu.

> David Armstrong is correct: DO NOT TOUCH or attempt to retrieve dead birds you find. If in your yard, put on gloves, scoop into a baggie and put it in the garbage. Do not bury it as if another animal digs it up, that can spread if the bird died of AI. Do not put them in your freezer or take them to a museum unless you are sure how they died. Again, this is a highly transmissible disease.
