Report Dead Birds
The Macon County Health Department maintains a log of dead birds which can be tested and, if positive, could indicate the presence of West Nile Virus in the area. Please report only dead birds that have no physical signs of trauma and are either crows, jays or ravens. While West Nile Virus has been found in more than 250 species of birds, these are the most susceptible to the disease. To report dead birds, call MCHD at 217-423-6988 Ext: 1134.
