Dead bird reporting form
To report a dead bird, please fill in as much of the form as possible. We might contact you for additional information and/or collect the bird for testing. The DWR is currently conducting tests for the avian influenza Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Avian Influenza: Asian H5N1 (avian influenza) is primarily a disease of concern for domestic poultry and waterfowl (ducks, geese, swans, shorebirds). The DWR is currently conducting surveillance to detect Asian H5N1 should it appear in Utah. Asian H5N1 has not yet been detected in North America. If you find a group of dead waterfowl (20 or more individuals), please report these birds to the DWR using this online reporting form.
Please note: Birds must have died within 24 hours to allow for any testing. Birds dead longer than 24 hours will show evidence of bugs, a bad smell and might be stiff and dried out. Get more information about diseases that affect birds.
