This map includes observations of wild birds displaying these behaviors or conditions, which are suggestive of HPAI in wild birds:
Data for this map was collated from reports made to the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service Alaska Sick and Dead Bird Hotline (1-866-527-3558), the LEO Network, and other sources. There are many types of reports received on the hotline. This map includes the reports of wild birds that meet the stated "unusual behavior" criteria. The map summarizes local observations throughout Alaska about unusual wild bird behavior and mortality that may be associated with the ongoing outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI). The observations summarized here do not depict confirmed HPAI cases, but rather, represent observations, or syndromic surveillance, suggestive of HPAI in wild birds. For information on laboratory confirmed cases of HPAI in wild birds in Alaska, please see the State of Alaska, Division of Environmental Health website here. The State of Alaska website is updated as data becomes available through the national laboratory testing efforts.
