Bit more reading via Google, and another comment from me:

Just come across a page by Henry Niman where he forecast bird flu from Qinghai in July “will soon arrive in areas to the east, south, and west, of the summer location.”
http://www.recombinomics.com/News/07280502/H5N1_Qinghai_Evolution.html

Yet when it spread to the north instead, he wasn’t fazed – just said bar-headed geese move north from Qinghai to a lake in Russia.
And never mind, apparently, this happens at a time they’re flightless. (Presumably, Niman figures they walk pretty fast.)
