As of June 1, 2012 Dead Bird submissions are being accepted for the season.
West Nile virus infects certain wild birds. The infected birds, especially crows, are known to get sick and die from the infection. Reporting of dead birds is a good way to check for West Nile virus activity in the environment to allow implementation of prevention and control measures to minimize the spread of the virus. The Nebraska West Nile virus Surveillance program relies on Nebraska citizens to report and submit dead birds seen around their property or elsewhere.
