The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) West Nile Virus Dead Bird Hotline is an important part of West Nile virus surveillance. Residents who find a dead bird in good condition should call 1-877-WNV-BIRD (1-877-968-2473) or file a report online. Although reports are only taken live during April to October, the District receives reports of dead birds year-round from CDPH and will collect and test suitable birds in any season.
