Please Note: Due to COVID-19, 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 .
