Part of the problem in answering this question stems from the crossover/confusion regarding what "hit" means. There doesn't seem to be enough
differentiation between aviasn cases and human cases.
Anyway, there was an article just a month or so ago that said once (if) it becomes human to human transmission elsewhere in the world, expect it to
reach the US in two months.
As for the birds, it all depends upon migration and infections from importations. I seriously doubt though that we will really know it till quite a
bit after it happens in the US. For all we know it could already be here in the birds. JUst look at how dodgey they are with mad cow.
