Henry and Stark Counties accepting dead birds for West Nile testing
With warmer weather comes the season for West Nile Virus, and Henry County is accepting a wide variety of birds for testing. Birds include crows, blue jays, grackle, starling, robin, cardinal, catbird, mockingbird, sparrows, finches, flycatchers, swallows, warblers, wrens and small or medium sized hawks and owls.
"Mosquitoes and birds are the key vectors of West Nile virus transmission," Health Department Environmental Health Services Director Dorothy David said in a release. "Therefore, the Health Department would like to alert area residents that they will be accepting dead birds for West Nile Virus testing."
Eligible birds should be those with no obvious cause of death and those who have not been damaged by scavenging animals or decomposed. Animals with maggots, deflated or dried eyes, bloated or with a strong odor are considered decomposing and should be discarded.
Birds should be submitted to the Health Department Main Office, 4424 U.S. Highway 34, Kewanee. For more information, call 309-852-0197 or visit henrystarkhealth.com.
