Associated Press quotes Birdchaser about bird flu

I was quoted today in an AP story about migratory birds and bird flu. Again, not the best quote (you gotta go all the way to the end of the story to see my line), but what the heck.

This article references today's Science magazine story reviewing "Global Patterns of Influenza A Virus in Wild Birds". Its a great article with lots of details on just how many birds are carrying various bird flu viruses. By most accounts, the H5N1 virus is even more rare than these other strains of bird flu, so the article re-emphasizes just how rare that virus probably is in most bird populations.
