Please Note: Due to COVID-19, District offices are currently closed and the District has suspended the dead bird program at this time. Reports of dead birds can still be submitted to westnile.ca.gov for risk mapping. See site here: http://westnile.ca.gov/report_wnv.php.
If you find a dead bird, simply dispose of the bird’s carcass (body), don’t handle it with your bare hands. Use gloves or an inverted plastic bag to place the carcass in a garbage bag, which can then be disposed of in your regular trash .
