Several wild ducks and geese in King County have tested positive for bird flu. 

These birds were found both on private property and in public parks in Seattle and Bellevue.
Do not approach or touch wild birds, particularly if they appear ill or are dead. 

Do not try to transport wild birds or keep them in your house or yard.

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife may be able to pick up the sick or dead birds: 

Report online at or call 360-902-2200, press 4, and leave a detailed voicemail.
