Collecting Dead Birds
Testing for the West
The Mason County Health Department is now accepting dead bird
submissions for the testing of West Nile Virus. The collection and
testing of dead birds is an important part of the West Nile Virus
surveillance program as it helps determine the extent of WNV activity.
The virus will usually appear in bird and mosquito populations before it
is transmitted to humans; therefore monitoring bird and mosquito
populations helps us predict when and where humans will be at risk for
Birds that are eligible for submission have to be in good condition (no
signs of decay or missing parts) and appear to be dead less than 48
hours. Furthermore, eligible dead birds should appear to have died from
natural causes. Birds that have been hit by cars, run into windows, or
caught by animals are not eligible.
If you find a bird that could be eligible for submission, please contact
the Mason County Health Department. A representative of the MCHD will
come to the location and pick up the dead bird if it is eligible. The
time period for submission ends October 15, 2022.
If you have any
questions about the vector control program, West Nile Virus, or the dead
bird collection, please contact the Mason County Health Department
