Does WA not have a West Nile Virus monitoring program?
This is a quote from the Pensylvania web site:
"The West Nile virus infects certain wild birds. The infected birds, especially crows, are known to get sick and die from the infection. Reporting of dead birds is a good way to check for West Nile virus activity in the environment and allow implementation of prevention and control measures to minimize the spread of the virus. "
I guess there are not many reported cases of West Nile in Washington yet ?

I called DFW.  For item 1 they filled out a form for the Dept. of Health, but said that due to limited funding probably nothing would be done.  Regarding item 2 they said that nothing could be done.

>> 1.  While attending a granddaughter's softball game at Hartman Field in Redmond, I saw a dead crow in the very NE corner of the park just inside the cyclone fence.  Should this be reported to someone?

>> 2.  Yesterday while taking some out-of-town guests to the Ballard Locks, we came across a small Great Blue Heron on the ground west of the heron rookery which is on the south side of the ship canal and west of the locks.  It was on the street side of the metal pipe fence that separates the walkway from the canal where the walkway turns up toward the street.  It appeared that the heron could not figure out how to get back on the other side of the fence.  I convinced myself that I didn't need to do anything, but now I am not so sure.
