So far, not much info here (largely as omitting the great steaming mounds of stupid stuff about migratory birds from Niman - partly covered in another thread here).
Right now, though, a quote from FAO - a bulletin on avian influenza, which pointed finger at wild birds as major carriers even though conclusions included:
Wild birds found to have been infected with HPAI [=H5N1] were either sick or dead. This could possibly affect the ability of these birds to carry HPAI for long distances.
in avibull 033, 1 Sept 2005 - which warned of wild birds spreading H5N1 from Asia, and led with - stupidity alert! stupidity alert! - a photo of Snow Geese, a North American species.
