How to Report a Dead Bird


 

The Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health no longer collects dead birds for West Nile Virus (WNV) surveillance. The Department does, however, continue to record information on all dead birds found in the county as part of ongoing monitoring activities.

 

To report a dead bird, you may call the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health Zika Virus & Mosquito information line at (845) 486-3438 and select option 1; or you may send an email to HealthInfo@DutchessNY.gov.

Please provide the following information:

  1. Name & Address including Zip Code
  2. Date bird was found
  3. Kind of bird found or general description

 

You may dispose of the bird through your normal trash collection.  Wash your hands thoroughly after disposing.
