It was an injured bird, reported by member of the public; died the next day.

More than 6,000 dead birds have been tested for H5N1 avian influenza since late October, 2005, with 16 confirmed cases involving two chickens and 14 wild birds.

– note that “native” birds would be more accurate, since not known if wild or captive origin for all the birds.
