      When Kuwait recently found H5N1 in a flamingo, it was reported to be a migratory bird. Seemed to add to the threadbare evidence for migratory birds spreading H5N1 this autumn (that evidence looking real pathetic just now).

      Yet, from Birdlife regional office:

      Having spoken to our affiliate in Kuwait, it seems that the only
      confirmed fact is that the Flamingo was found in a private farm ( among
      several other flamingos being kept at the farm ). They are imported
      birds and not migratory, and at the farm they were kept with different
      birds most of which are imported.
