Get the Facts about Bird Flu on Cape Cod
Bird Flu has been found on Cape Cod beginning in February of 2022, and continues to present itself in wild birds. While it does not pose an immediate health threat to people, it does spread easily among wild birds, poultry, and domestic birds. We’ve put together a fact sheet to answer your questions and be a useful guide to keep pets, humans and wild and domestic birds safe from the spread of this disease. Be sure to call us if you see sick or injured birds, and follow safety guidelines if you will be handling birds.
If you find a sick or injured bird please contact our Wildlife Helpline: 508-240-2255.
