Dozens Of Dead Birds Shut Down Parts Of Congress Avenue





Several blocks of Congress Avenue have been closed off to traffic because several dozen dead birds have been found in the area. And if you work in the area, you're being asked to stay home from work until at least noon.
Congress Avenue and one block on either side of the street is shut down from Cesar Chavez to 11th Street until approximately noon. That's because several dozen dead birds were found Monday morning, with most of the birds concentrated on 9th Street.
The fire department was called out to the area around 4 a.m. on Monday to test if there had been a gas or chlorine leak, but nothing of that nature was found. However, further precautionary testing is ongoing, and fire officials are requesting that individuals that work in this area not to come in until further notice.
Animal control is now testing the birds to try to find out why they died.

every time you bump this, you'll be hated on.... and since it's been over a year, expect that hate to increase exponentially.

From your linked article:

"Valadez says the tests will look for signs of poisoning or viral infections -- although he discounted the possibility of ``bird flu'' as a factor."

Thousands of birds fall from sky

By Amanda O'Brien
January 10, 2007 01:00am

THOUSANDS of birds have fallen from the skies over Esperance and no one knows why.
Is it an illness, toxins or a natural phenomenon? A string of autopsies in Perth have shed no light on the mystery.
All the residents of flood-devastated Esperance know is that their "dawn chorus" of singing birds is missing.
The main casualties are wattle birds, yellow-throated miners, new holland honeyeaters and singing honeyeaters, although some dead crows, hawks and pigeons have also been found.
Wildlife officers are baffled by the "catastrophic" event, which the Department of Environment and Conservation said began well before last week's freak storm.
On Monday, Esperance, 725km southeast of Perth, was declared a natural disaster zone.
District nature conservation co-ordinator Mike Fitzgerald said the first reports of birds dropping dead in people's yards came in three weeks ago. More than 500 deaths had since been notified. But the calls stopped suddenly last week, reportedly because no birds were left.

"It's very substantial. We estimate several thousand birds are dead, although we don't have a clear number because of the large areas of bushland," Mr Fitzgerald said.

Birds Australia, the nation's main bird conservation group, said it had not heard of a similar occurrence. "Not on that scale, and all at the same time, and also the fact that it's several different species," chief executive Graeme Hamilton said. "You'd have to call that a most unusual event and one that we'd all have to be concerned about."

He expected birds would return to the area once the problem - natural or man-made phenomenon - was fixed but said it was vital the cause was identified.

The Department of Agriculture and Food, which conducted the autopsies, has almost ruled out an infectious process.

Acting chief veterinary officer Fiona Sunderman said toxins were the most likely cause but the deaths could be due to anything from toxic algae to chemicals and pesticides.

Dr Sunderman said there were no leads yet on which of potentially hundreds of toxins might be responsible. Some birds were seen convulsing as they died.

Michelle Crisp was one of the first to contact the DEC after finding dozens of dead birds on her property one morning.

She told The Australian she normally had hundreds of birds in her yard, but that she and a neighbour counted 80 dead birds in one day.
"It went to the point where we had nothing, not a bird," she said.
"It was like a moonscape, just horrible. But the frightening thing for us, we didn't find any more birds after that. We literally didn't have any birds left to die."

Bird Flu May Have Infected Relatives of H5N1 Patient (Update2)
By Karima Anjani
Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Two family members of a woman infected with bird flu in Indonesia were hospitalized with symptoms of the virus, said a doctor treating the patients. The disease spread to fowl in a fifth province of southern Vietnam.
The 37-year-old woman, who tested positive for the H5N1 strain of avian influenza two days ago, remains in critical condition at Persahabatan Hospital in Jakarta, Mukhtar Ikhsan, a doctor at the hospital, said today. Her 42-year-old husband and their 18-year-old son have symptoms of fever and respiratory infection, and are being tested for H5N1.
Infections in birds and people are increasing in Asia, where the virus was first identified a decade ago. South Korea reported its first avian outbreaks since March 2004 last month, and today reported an infected person who showed no symptoms. Disease trackers are looking for signs that H5N1 is changing to become more adept at infecting humans, which could start a pandemic.
``People were beginning to tell us that we were crying wolf and that this virus had gone away and there was no problem,'' Peter Cordingley, a Manila-based spokesman for the World Health Organization, said in an interview. ``Our message has stayed the same, which is that just because it's not in the headlines, it doesn't mean it's not in the environment.''
The H5N1 strain is known to have infected 264 people in 10 countries since 2003, killing 157 of them, the Geneva-based WHO said yesterday. Indonesia has reported 58 fatalities, more than any other country. Vietnam, which reported that the virus killed 30 chickens in Vinh Long province, hasn't had any human cases since 2005. South Korea hasn't had any cases confirmed by WHO.
Indonesian Cluster
Health officials monitor suspected clusters of cases closely because they may signal the virus is becoming more adept at infecting humans, not just birds.
``They're showing symptoms similar to bird flu and we must remain vigilant,'' Ikhsan, the Indonesian doctor, said in a telephone interview. Tests for H5N1 are also being run on two other people receiving treatment at the hospital, he said.
The Southeast Asian nation attracted international attention in May when seven members of a family from the island of Sumatra contracted the H5N1 virus, six of them fatally. The cases represented the largest reported cluster of infections and the first laboratory-proven instance of human-to-human transmission.
The latest confirmed case in Indonesia may have been caused by contact with a sick bird. The woman slaughtered a chicken she bought from a local market, I Nyoman Kandun, the ministry's director general of disease control and environment, said Jan. 9.
Japan, South Korea
Japanese officials are investigating whether dead birds found at a chicken farm in Miyazaki prefecture were infected with bird flu, Kyodo News reported, citing the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry. The farm has a total of 12,000 fowl, Kyodo said today. Japan hasn't reported any avian infections to the World Organization for Animal Health, according to the Paris- based agency's Web site.
South Korea's new asymptomatic case of the H5N1 strain of avian influenza was found after analyzing blood taken from a farm worker exposed to diseased fowl during an outbreak last month, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in an e-mailed statement today. It didn't give details of the person.
``There were no abnormal symptoms observed in the person, so the person isn't'' infected with disease, the agency said.
South Korea had four outbreaks of H5N1 in poultry last year. The Ministry of Health said in September that it identified five asymptomatic cases in addition to the four it found in February 2006.
The latest case had been given Roche Holding AG's Tamiflu antiviral medicine as a precaution to prevent the disease and was vaccinated against seasonal influenza to help prevent the avian strain combining with the more infectious human form, the Korean health agency said. The person was re-tested for H5N1 10 days after the initial exposure, it said.
The center completed testing on blood samples from 26 of 85 people considered to have been exposed to the virus, it said. The remainder of results may be reported by the end of the month, the center said.
