Hi Lenny:

Thanks for the posts; I’ve added the photo to one.

In Hong Kong, one or two dead Little Egrets tested positive. Most of our Little Egrets are resident, and this/these birds at pond in an urban park, with ornamental ducks etc that were killed by H5N1 (at much the same time as H5N1 in local poultry farms)

Yes, smuggled birds could indeed be a problem.
Hope Candaba remains h5n1 free!
