At this time we are only able to test birds from the corvidae family (crows, ravens, jays). Specimen birds for testing must also be intact and "fresh"---NOT hit by a car or otherwise mutilated, and died within the last 24 hours. We can only collect dead birds for testing from May 15 - September 30.

Please submit birds found in Multnomah County, Oregon only. If you are outside Multnomah County, Oregon, please contact your local health department or vector district for further information. Due to the volume of birds reported, not all bird samples may be collected and tested. If you report a dead bird after hours or on weekends, we will respond if appropriate during regular business hours, Monday-Friday 8:00am -4:30pm.

Check the bird identification page for photos of regional corvids.
