Ahead of Print -Deaths among Wild Birds during Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza A(H5N8) Virus Outbreak, the Netherlands - Volume 23, Number 12—December 2017 - Emerging Infectious Disease journal -... | watervogels | Scoop.it

Among the ≈13,600 birds reported dead, most were tufted ducks (Aythya fuligula) and Eurasian wigeons (Anas penelope).
