As far as I understand and don't take my word on the details, it doesn't make sense for birds throuhgout the US to be dying from avian flu, becuase
it doesn't affect all birds, and its limited to fowl (chickens, geese, etc etc), and because its simply not in the US yet. The disease is spread to
domestic fowl via wild fowl, which migrate, and the group of concern is supposed to be hitting the urals and europe this month, not the US. Its by
infecting the domestic fowl that a zoonoses is created, a pool of animals by which human epi/en-demics can pop out of. Also, they can determine when
an animal dies from avian flu, I beleive, so if this is some mystery disease, then that means its not avian flu.
