Corvid reporting online (no collection or testing)
In all areas of the province, you can report a dead corvid or a cluster using the online Corvid Reporting Form. Birds reported in this way will not be collected and tested for the virus and can be safely disposed of after the report is made. Information on the location of dead birds is mapped and analyzed to detect areas of the province with greater than expected corvid deaths.
Corvid collection for testing purposes
There is no corvid collection. Dead corvids from all regions should be reported through the online Corvid Reporting Form:
Note: corvids are not susceptible to avian influenza and will not be tested for this virus. If you have found a dead bird other than a crow, raven, jay or magpie, please refer to these instructions on how to report the bird to the appropriate agency: BC Interagency Wild Bird Mortality Investigation Plan [PDF, 874KB].
